ACG Tauranga's project is a large-scale, collaborative work based on artist Reuben Paterson and his work Whakapapa: get down upon your knees.
The pupils have created a rotational print, designed to rotate around two points and divided in half diagonally, so that students have two different compositional outcomes upon printing.
The work is a response to Paterson’s ideas, both conceptionally and visually. His work explores his genealogy and heritage, and is presented in visual form through the use of pattern.
Throughout the process, students have reflected on their cultural background, and that of our country and local area.
