Both as a reference to her great ocean-voyaging ancestors and as a tracking of her journey to reach Denver, Colorado, Natasha Keating, a Maori
Artist from Aotearoa, New Zealand, brings her renderings of female effigies which act as silent memorials to the contemporary realities of Maori /
Indigenous women.

"I have always been interested in the way we are represented, the way non-Maori have captured our images through painting, through
photography, through caricature, through film, through tourist items etc. These images are often nostalgic, exotic, comical, sexualized, and of a
questionable reality. I often seek to re-claim those images and to re-populate the world with .- images of Maori women by a Maori woman. I hope
to— create silent, permanent memorials to our contemporary lives, loves and fears. The women I try to seek out from within the wood grain visually
articulate the pain and power that surviving 165 years of colonialism brings.

I am interested in the lessons and traditions of Maori Art and being able to contribute to a contemporary continuum of this. I look to our past in
order to understand the present and therefore be able to participate in the future. I am excited about this opportunity of sharing my artwork and
culture with the Denver community. " - Natasha Keating.

I am in the process of re-photographing most everything and changing the pages to my new format, but that process will
take some time.  I have left these items accessible to people to browse through while I am in the process of doing that.

Also, this month I'm helping to spread the word of a new business venture by a talented photographer friend of mine,
Susan Burbidge.
She has used her photographs on the sides of eco-friendly multi-purpose bags that she's started selling.
Her
wonderful photographs will be available for purchase on her website soon as well.

"Susan Burbidge has been considering the world through various viewfinders since she was a teenager. These bags
consist of photographs taken (with the permission of the manager) at the Purity Supreme store in Newton Highlands,
Massachusetts in 1973. The images were made using a Nikkormat FT camera and TriX 400 film."

Read more about her work on her website in the "The Story" section, and buy a bag or three!

I am honored that a very generous gift was recently made to the Denver Art Museum in my name. This gift
will enable the development of an educational outreach program to elementary school children that will have
a
specific focus on African, Oceanic and American Indian art.

and development departments of the Denver Art Museum on.
