Focus on Pattern

John's fascination with pattern has a long history dating back to when he was a child creating his own Moiré patterns.

The interest remained throughout his childhood, and the recurring calming rhythm of pattern formed a welcome antipode to his ever moving life.

Coming home to New Zealand with a fresh view on things he rediscovered the richness of pattern in Mãori art that surrounds him here and connects him to his own whakapapa.
