It is truly an honour and privilege to bring you this collection of paintings to Kingsroy Gallery. Not only are these works significant to our shared history and culture, but they showcase the unique and extraordinary talent of Bruce Jackson as a visual narrator and artist.
At Kingsroy, I like to present shows and artists that are provocative. As visitors step into my space I wish for them to be engaged, delighted and even challenged. Jackson's series of paintings fit this brief precisely, as they explore alternative narratives of colonisation in Aotearoa.
The Tales from the Māoriland collection began in 2007 when Bruce returned to Taranaki and began to paint. Content up until now to paint for himself and his family, Bruce has now decided to share his work to a wider audience. This will be the first time any of his work has left his private studio and I am honoured to dedicate the closing months of this year to an extended showing of the collection.
I invite you to learn more, both from this catalogue and in the gallery, as you examine the paintings and read about the artist who has dedicated many years to bring these paintings so beautifully to fruition.
