Robin Slow | Brian Flintoff Tohu ‘To Think’ ‘A mark, a sign.’ ‘Anything serving as a reminder – token of rememberance” Little River Gallery shows for the second time a collaborative exhibition by Robin Slow (painting), Brian Flintoff (carving) and Bob Bickerton (soundscape). This year they follow on in the tradition of visually forwarding histories and stories to be reflected on and become immersed in. Robin Slow an artist whose work is also held in private collections, galleries and marae throughout the country has used paint to create traditional forms used in conjunction with natural forms. The method of producing the work has a traditional background but there has been an evolving of techniques and materials. This series of works takes some traditional tohu, be it in the form of the composition, the patterns created or the creatures. It explores the past and present to produce another tohu and that is the sign towards the future. For many years, Brian Flintoff has created taonga puoro (musical instruments) for players and musicians throughout the country. Not only do these create unique sounds but he has carved into them the stories and histories that are woven into their function. His works are held in many major galleries throughout the world as well as collections and marae here in Aotearoa. From the painted images, carvings and reference points each has used in their works, Bob Bickerton created a CD to enhance aspects visually but aurally as well to form a piece to be contemplated on and be enriched by. Tohu (signs) surround us manifesting before and through our differing senses. Presented as a-tinana (physical) and wha wairua (spiritual) appearances, patterns, actions, sounds of the surrounding environment encompassing the seen and unseen, the ora and the mate.
