Whetū Whitu is a series of brooches that reflect the stories of Puanga and Matariki.
Matthew McIntyre Wilson is a Visual Arts tutor at Te Auaha for the New Zealand Diploma in Jewelry (Level 5). His ongoing Price of Change Series, which features re-purposed imagery cut from New Zealand, Cook Island and British coins, is currently on display.
Brooches are normally pinned to the wearer, but for this exhibition they adorn light boxes as large-scale prints.
Whetū Whitu is on display at the Courtenay Place Park Light Boxes, Courtenay Place, Wellington, 1st June - 20th August.
