Amelia (2013)
Ana Lakusa
Oil on board

Check this work out in That’s not Pacific Art, the second of three exhibitions that make up the inaugural PIMPI Winter Series. The exhibition opens Thursday 6 August and runs until Wednesday 26 August at Big Willie Legacy Barber & Tattoo Studio, 159 Mt Eden Road, central Auckland.

This large scale oil painting is part of Ana Lakusa’s 2013 graduate series, From Heaven to Hell inspired by Ganglands, an American documentary series that profiled Polynesian gang life in Salt Lake City (USA). The works draw on the blurred lines between church, organised religion, loyalty, identity, family and gangsterism.
