Chris Charteris

MATAU

September 16 - October 22, 2008

Inspired by the fishhook (matau) form, works in the exhibition reflect both the strength of material and Charteris connection with both land and sea.

"If not working with rock I am often sitting on a rock with a fishing rod in my hand. I am inspired by the balance of form, function and beauty of the early Maori bone and stone hooks found in our museum collections." - Chris Charteris, September 2009
