Touchy Feely Paintings at Fresh!

29 04 2011

The first exhibition of the Pacific Arts Summit is a one-week exhibition of recent works by Leahna Gill at Fresh Gallery Otara!

Leahna Gill has collaborated with Fijian performance poet Daren Kamali to create the illustrations for his bilingual poetry book, Poems and Songs from the Underwater World. Gill’s paintings explore ancestral totems, the significance of the ocean and dreamtime. Working with acrylic on canvas, she creates three dimensional textures, allowing blind people to see her works with their hands.

With Indian and Australian background, Ms Gill was born in Singapore, grew up in the United States and lived in Hawaii for over 20 years. She currently resides in Aotearoa where she finds inspiration in the landscapes, the ocean and people.
