Andy Leleisi’uao – Harmonic Island Panel 5. Acrylic on canvas, 1110x760mm, 2018. Shipping by arrangement.
Andy’s art since the mid 2000s has transitioned from darker subjects towards a deeper complexity that proposes a mix to contemporary Pacific reality. His UFOlogical series has elements of Māori, Samoan, Pakeha, Rapanui culture represented as a games-based society. Happy and halcyon in a crowded future world, these sun-filled people have all the characteristics of early computer game figures. Like the ghost-games from some Oceanic Atari.
