Kepakemapa - September 1996 Volume 2 Issue 9

 This group of contemporary native Hawaiian artists of Hale Naua III, Society of Hawaii Arts, express through conceptual interpretations and modern mediums the metaphor that is their culture. Their accumulative body of work is a culmination of the many years of perseverance and pulling together of energy and talent.

The individual art exhibited in “turning back the sky” reveals the personal style of each artist with the wholeness based upon meticulous research, scientific comparisons, proper understanding of symbolisms, family genealogies, and histories. This is what makes their art solely unique and authentic. I welcome you to a 20th Century view of cultural artistic renderings by the descendants, eighty generations removed from the era of Maui.
