Harry Watson: That Was Then, This Is Now

An exhibition of past and recent work by Page Blackie Gallery Artist Harry Watson is now on at Aratoi Museum of Art and History, Wairarapa.

Harry creates animal, feathered and human protagonists (often based on real historical figures) that often recreate their dramas against the backdrop of a fledgling colonial society. Melding Maori and Pakeha techniques and traditions, Harry explores the social history and politics of Aoteroa in ways that are at once quirky and thought-provoking.

Harry Watson: That Was Then, This Is Now runs at Aratoi Museum of Art and History, Wairarapa until the 11th of March 2012.
