He Korowai Mahana. To Be Cloaked In The Comfort Of Whakapapa.

Donna Dinsdale – Solo Exhibition. Retrospective and New Works.

13th July – 14th August 2023

Donna has described how this beautiful invitation was conceived and it’s connection to the exhibition.

The background letter is a transcripted letter of my Mum’s Uncle Dudley from WW2, he wrote to his mum every day and unfortunately never made it home as he was killed, my new work is based around him. I also put in the seven sisters stars of Matariki and the post stamps off the letters. The blanket frame was envisioning that the mum  was at home with a framed picture of her son hanging on the wall when she received the letters.

Donna collaborated with an Australian designer/consultant Greet Recoules to generate this announcement. (
