Central to the artist’s inspiration is the salience and omnipresence of the Pacific Ocean. The ocean pervades every aspect of Samoan and Pacific life. It nourishes and provides, it destroys and takes away. The strict traditional hierarchy of culture, the patterns of meaning that lock us into place, belie at times and obscure the waves of emotion and myriad of forms within ourselves which are like the Ocean - formless and ever changing.
