SIONE  FALEMAKA whitespacer SIONE FALEMAKA

ARTIST / WEAVER  PACIFIC ART 

Inspired for his current work was drawn from Siones research visits to the vast collection of Pacific artifacts in the Australian Museum.In Polynesia it is every childs dream to build the Tau Matua (parents) a Fale (house). In his recent exhibition involvement with the ‘House of Plenty’the artist repurposed and recycled a multitude of materials. , such as celluloid film strips, packaging poly straps, yarns, dyes, and many other new and found materials useful in the making of his artworks.

In a progression of his work traditions and narratives from cultural practices and ancestral Pacific themes, are a continuation of his Pacific heritage. Based on research of Pacific artefacts, Sione creates new artworks which respond to his new stories created in a uniquely Australian context.

Siones artworks are based on traditional methods and techniques utilising and combining traditional and contemporary materials, encompassing ethical aspects of art and cultural practices. Mediums used in his artworks and adornments include, celluloid film strips, beads, feathers, packaging poly straps, yarns, dyes, and many other new and found materials useful in the making of his art.
