upcoming exhibition - in the hope these sentiments ricochet

Kirsty Warman

Exhibition Kina in New Plymouth.jpg
Around this precious world,
I observe crude rhetoric and regard the current provocative language threatening civil liberties.
I think about marginalised peoples and contemplate life journeys that metaphorically can be perilous and deadly, perhaps beautiful and uplifting, from the humdrum to the bright lights.
These painted figures are a reflection of my thoughts.

I really wanted to take her photo, so I walked up to the nearest adult and asked. ‘Does she belong to you?’ Suddenly the music stopped and I heard: ‘I belong to myself’!
