Alan Brown has been carving for over 30 years. He draws strongly from his Maori heritage to reflect the beauty of this land and the South Pacific. He can trace his bloodline to the canoes that came from Eastern Polynesia and the Great Migration of 1350 A.D.
Brown’s work is displayed in national and international galleries, museums, and collections.
“When there is love for somebody or something a relationship develops – a dialogue of some sort at some level becomes a process of discovery...
These works reflect my dialogue and love for the land, our heritage, the present and future, and becomes arrows and messengers that fly on into the lives and psyches of unknowns ones...Uki Uki Tau-e (for generations untold).”
