These works show a progressive journey of healing and hope through the time of COVID 19. Te Kore the darkness and endless potential from which all is created and all must walk through. Understanding the process of Whakapapa which leads you to the space in which you now stand. Io represents the wrestle of decolonizing understandings of Io and the workings of Christianity.
