Dane Taylor and Pusi Urale recently collaborated on a large scale abstraction for Art Week Auckland and for this show the work returns back to Avondale. This collaborative piece stands alongside a selection of their previous work and the abstract works of Vaimaila Urale (Pusi’s daughter / Dane’s partner). The result is a three way family conversation exploring the possibilities of geometric abstraction mixed with representational elements.

Vaimaila Urale was born in Fagamolo and grew up in Wellington. She graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from AUT. She works across new media and is a founding member of Auckland art collective D.a.n.c.e. Art Club.
Dane Taylor was born in Masterton and graduated with a BA in Film and Anthropology from Victoria University and a BFA in Fine Arts from Auckland University.
