The exhibition showcases the joint practice of husband and wife duo Lissy and Rudi Robinson-Cole.

Through crocheted sculptural forms in neon colours, they bring together colours, textures and shapes that explore their connection to this world and the next and the practice of Mātauranga Māori.

The crochet itself symbolises their deep connection to their wairua and the neon yarn symbolises aroha connecting us all.

The kaupapa of the duo’s art practice is joy expressed through their art which they see as a gift from their Tupuna.

This body of work expresses the deep aroha the artists have for their tupuna, people, culture, and each other.
