Peata Larkin explores the dynamic crossover between contemporary painting, traditional Māori art forms and digital technology.

She is strongly connected to her Māori ancestry (Tūhourangi, Tūwharetoa, Ngāti Whakaue) and she references the patterns of both weaving and tukutuku in her artwork. Using contemporary materials, Larkin’s paintings evoke the presence of the digital world and the imagery of science and medicine. Exhibition courtesy of the artist and Two Rooms.
