Kaleidoscope - Attitudes Towards Landscape

Television (Full Length) – 1987

I don't think that I ever approached a landscape from just a sort of total realism. The landscape had to be controlled and restructured, composed into pictorial space.
– Doris Lusk
When we started painting people like our ancestors and using paint and paper or cardboard that sort of shocked people a bit. The other thing was to actually make art forms that belonged inside your own home. That wasn't readily acceptable. Art, particularly māori art, belonged to the marae.
– Cliff Whiting
