About the tile:
“My intention was to produce a tile, which is the result of a combination of art processes. Therefore the
reference to the Nikabu palm follows the mutation from the real tree to a metal sculpture, to a photographic
silver gelatin print, to a clay tile bas-relief, to a painted image, to the finished tile and finally back to a
sculpture or any other kind of installation, in which the tile will be incorporated.” “Ao Tea Roa” is the
Maori name of New Zealand, meaning Land of the Long White Cloud.
