They Are Us By Lester Hall
From his studio in Kerikeri, printmaker Lester Hall creates visually striking artwork that is layered with detail, strongly political, and often serves as a great conversation starter.
Ten years ago Lester referenced the Tretchikoff Chinese Girl to create a conversation about the place of multigenerational Chinese Kiwi, called POLL TAX..
Two years ago, he went on to reference his own work and create BLUE LADY to include the many Chinese who have arrived in Aotearoa New Zealand this last decade…
This revised version of the POLL TAX is asking the same question of us about our Asian Kiwis post COVID-19. THEY ARE US, and if we are unlucky enough to be hospitalized during the upcoming years, we will know that they are many of the souls who work to keep us well. Stay Home, Play Safe, Be Kind.
