Pacifika Patterns: Graeme Mackay


Becroft Gallery

Pacific patterns are on the move, growing with our culture. I want the new form to come out of a base that is full of veins, roots and arms that merge and to a more formal shape. The view is the form rising up to a new opening and distribution of the Pacific pattern. A culture moving on from basic beginnings and developing a new modern form.

"I have been a commercial and fine art Woodturner for over 10 years and have a long-term interest in carving and sculpturing - wood and many other mediums. I enjoy working with and developing form that is associated with Drive, uplift and movement.  Many are my pieces come from recycled timber or rescued from fireplace.The white wood as part of a series using privet recovered from firewood stacks and generally around the neighbourhood." Graeme Mackay
