Red Tui 'Observations & Intimacy'
Jan 28th - Feb 16th 2011 Wallace Community Gallery
'Red Tui' is a Te Aroha artist proficient in many media. After years of working with tiles, creating art using mosaic pieces, Craig Brooking has now started to focus on his skills as a painter.
'Observations & Intimacy' is a snapshot of personal observations Red Tui has made about people, both close to him and unknown to him. Many of the works speak about his wife's battle with cancer and the way this has affected their relationship over the years.
Wallace Gallery is proud to have the first solo show from Red Tui which includes both his oil paintings and tiled mosaics.
Red Tui will be at the Gallery on Thursday 3rd Feb from 6:30-8pm to talk about his work
