Aloha Aku, Aloha Mai (2016)
oil on canvas, framed
48” x 36”
Aloha Aku, Aloha Mai belongs to a body of work that Solomon Enos created as part of a cultural and artistic exchange in Aotearoa (New Zealand). In this exchange, he worked with Maori artist Star Gossage. Each artist made work inspired by the other’s homelands. This painting depicts Enos’ memory of Pakiri Beach, which is Gossage’s ancestral home. Generations ago, Gossage’s ancestors planted a pohutukawa (‘ōhi‘a) tree on the hillside along the 10km stretch of beach, functioning as a landmark for their family’s ancestral land. The tree represents the foresight of prior generations for their descendants.
