Tui Slater Conceptual Artist



Kia Ora - Welcome to Tui Slater’s Online Gallery and Studio

Multi-disciplined contemporary works focussed on challenging perceptions of New Zealand through its culture, language and imagery.

Wall Art Gallery
New Zealand icons like corrugated iron, shepherds' dog whistles, black singlets along with domestic items from the kitchen and garage are worked into snappy, staunch and savvy pieces about kiwi society

Sculpture Gallery
Created from materials such as bone, metal, wood, wool, fabric and found objects like dolls, hammers and marbles, these works vary in size and style to best suit my concepts.

Jewellery Gallery
My Kiwiana influenced necklaces and brooches are fun and gusty wearable statements about New Zealand life.

Go Rogue! Go Rogue!

21st October 2011
After a research break and preparing for a summer of new exhibitions, I have a selection of work at the Lounge Shack in the 1911 Australasian Bank Building in Mangonui, Northland. This is a shared space in the Number 19 site on the Mangonui Historic Trail along with Audrey Mitchell who is selling a selection of deli products and collectables. Opening hours will be most weekends and Northland time on other days. There are new works along with a few old favourites.

Pure "Tuiana" - my parody on Kiwiana. Tuiana is my passion; observing and toying with New Zealand's iconography. I wonder who it is that defines our culture, what our gender and associated roles should be?

The majority of my present work is based on one of two themes:
Black Singlet
New Zealand Landscape
