A vibrant large-scale exhibition by Robin White bringing together works created over a lifetime in New Zealand and Kiribati.

In 1999 Robin White returned to her home country of New Zealand after living on Kiribati, the former Gilbert Islands, for more than ten years.

During her time away her imagery transformed from New Zealand Buzzy Bees and green landscapes to the colours and symbols of island life in the Pacific.

This vibrant large-scale exhibition brings together the full range of both periods in the artist's working life and includes screenprints, woodcuts, paintings and drawings as well as the exciting composite pandanus mats she has begun to experiment with recently.

Exhibition toured by the Hocken University Library, Dunedin.
