Alan Preston statement

Déclaration d'Alan Preston
"Au cours des 35 dernières années, j'ai réalisé un ensemble d'œuvres explorant les ornements contemporains du Pacifique en Aotearoa, Nouvelle Zélande. Les matériaux précieux que j'utilise, sont des coquillages, paua, écorce de noix de coco, des fibres, des graines et des baies trouvées localement et parfois de l’argent et de l’or".
