Art - Year 9

Lieve Bierque —

Our Aotearoa - this installation was created by 5 Year 9 art classes in response to the work of well-known New Zealand artist Richard Killeen.

Each student had to design, cut out and paint a symbol to represent what Aotearoa means to them. Colours are deliberately limited in the same way that Killeen’s limited his work from the 1970s and 1980s. This emphasises the importance of negative space in the design
