Ten Last Strokes Collective


For the past few years I’ve been concentrating on attending expressive life drawing and painting classes at Corbans Art Estate, with tutors Allie Eagle and Cushla Parakowhai, and until more recently have consequently not had as much time for painting in my studio.  When Allie recently stopped teaching to concentrate on her own painting, a group of her students decided to form a collective (Ten Last Strokes), and to continue painting together at Corbans.

Several portrait-based series emerged from Allie’s teaching, including part of the body of work I exhibited in the Where Shall We Call Home? exhibition, a fundraising arts event for refugee resettlement, which took place at Depot Artspace in June/July 2017.  Also included in this exhibition was a series of more abstract works relating specifically to the boat refugee crisis - The Region Series.
