Matthew Randall-Maori Artist

Tribal affiliation/groups:

Ngai Tamanuhiri Ngati Rakaipaaka

To embrace those who have passed on before us, our tipuna (ances- tors), who have been the repositories of vast knowledge, is an important part of being Maori. It is therefore embraced as a part of us, as Maori, acknowledged and recorded through our art, as it has in the past and will into the future. Ko tapu wae he tapu wae noa iho i nga kirikiri o te wa : your footprints are nothing more than the prints in the sands of time.
