Author(s): Glenn Colquhoun
An extraordinary collaboration between two of New Zealand's most stirring and popular artists - poet Glenn Colquhoun & painter Nigel Brown. Nigel Brown creates a unique vision of Aotearoa New Zealand while revisiting and reinterpreting our past. In North South he goes deep into the tribal roots of our country's imagination. Glenn Colquhoun imagines the northern gods of his Celtic heritage engaging with the atua Maori of the south, and creates a new mythology for this country. Nigel Brown has handwritten and illustrated Glenn's words. The poems sprawl across the page to clash, bend and ultimately fuse traditional Celtic and Maori motifs, song forms and poetry.
