Product Detail

Delve into the profound world of one of Aotearoa’s most acclaimed painters in The Hanging Sky, an exploration of Shane Cotton’s (Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Rangi, Ngāti Hine, Te Uri Taniwha) unique, revolutionary works across the 1990s and 2000s. Rich in symbolism, Cotton’s work boldly examines the intricacies of New Zealand’s evolving cultural identity through the lens of his own experience as a person of both Māori and Pākehā descent. Featuring texts by internationally acclaimed writers and 72 large-scale colour plates of Cotton's own skyscape works, The Hanging Sky takes you on a journey exploring art, time, and identity itself.
