Nigel Borell

Tribal Affiliations: Ngāi Te Rangi and Ngāti Ranginui

Within the Māori worldview two things are essential: whakapapa (genealogy) and whenua (land). For artist Nigel Borell, these elements are essential to Māori art.
Borell takes his interest in the surface of the paint a step further with the inclusion of European craft materials. Borell has demonstrated importance of whenua, in his work to his whakapapa, specifically his hapu from Tauranga, and the ways in which they are inextricably linked, whilst at the same time not to take them for granted.
