In his art practice, James Ormsby is constantly exploring his heritage. His works invariably make reference to history and his Christian religion, and the work of his forebears has always influenced and guided him. He questions what his ancestors, both tangata whenua and Scottish, would have used to make their marks, and ponders the significance of the visual symbols they chose to depict.
