Graham Fletcher, ‘Untitled (Mourner's Dress and Neo-Plastique Composition)’, 2018. Oil on canvas, 122 x 122cm. Courtesy: the artist and Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland.

Graham Fletcher’s Samoan and European genealogy provides a constant interplay of disparities in his overall artistic practice. In this new body of work, Fletcher uses a selection of ethnographic objects collected throughout many of Captain James Cook’s voyages and reimagines these objects within ‘tasteful’ modern interiors in his continuing examination of the complex and dynamic relationship between the civilised and ‘primitive’, colonial and colonised, and the observers and the observed. This exhibition, entitled The Golden Haze, marks the 250th anniversary of Cook’s first landmark expedition to the Pacific.
