Art reflects life's drama
ABOUT THE ARTS WITH MIKE NETTMANN
Converge at Hokianga Gallery
I once read: Art is imagination.
Art is feeling. Art is action. Art is
the highest expression of life, of
being. Art and life must be one''.
In their joint exhibition, father
and son Will and Ammon
Ngakuru encompass all of this
and more. Will is a sculptor who
lives and works in Waimamaku,
Hokianga, with a passion for toi
He realises the privilege of his
journey that has allowed him to
return home to work with the
stories, styles, patterns and forms
of his own whanau, hapu and iwi.
Will's sculptures explore and
express the fascinating space that
exists between culture, religion,
race, gender, land, ocean and sky,
a place of conflict and calm, com-
promise and resolve, passion and
pain. His small white ceramic
figures within tableaux tell open-
ended stories about being alive.
The extraordinary quality and
poignant serenity of his intimate
wooden sculptures, wonderfully
poised and executed with a stun-
ning refinement of technique, can-
not help but move the viewer --
masterpieces of his craft and
This is Ammon's first exhi-
bition. He is studying for a bach-
elor of visual art at Auckland Uni-
versity of Technology. His
paintings are inspired by every-
day encounters and experiences.
He is interested in the way the
human experience is impacted by
our exposure to all types of media.
He explores the chasm between
reality and the portrayal of so-
called reality. His paintings con-
front the viewer with surface sen-
suality and unyielding space
where there is only the drama of
objects, and you, watching.
The works are explosively ener-
getic and pensive, visceral and
Ammon is a very talented young
artist and maybe now is the time
to start collecting his work.
