Artful Narratives (1)

This collection of sculptural artists’ books and art objects offers an insight into the playful creative process of Tāmaki Makaurau artist Toni Hartill. It includes a number of bodies of work created between 2016 and 2021. 

One such body of work shares little known yet impactful stories from our local history such as the mass felling of kahikatea forests in the colonial era. Other works reveal a love for the NZ coastline through an ongoing fascination with mangroves and rock pools and a life of growing up near the sea. 

Although primarily a printmaker, Toni’s creations also evolve into alternative book structures and 3D objects, often repurposing found objects in her works. Her considered artworks are intended to entice and encourage further exploration and contemplation. 

Visitors to the exhibition are invited to visit Toni’s Artists’ Books Gallery on her blog to explore the making of these works and their inspiration. A number of pop-up events will take place on-site during the exhibition and these will be announced online and in the gallery.

The Angela Morton Room Te Pātaka Toi Art Library provides the chance to exhibit Toni’s artists’ books and artworks as a cohesive body of work in a sympathetic venue which also holds a unique archive of Aotearoa artists’ books in its special collection, available to be viewed by the public.

The exhibition suits all ages.

There is ample parking nearby, including in Takapuna Library’s carpark. The library is near bus routes and is a short walk from many stops.
