The practice of Neke Moa (Whare ā Papaīra, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Ahuriri, Kāi Tahu, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Tūwharetoa) seeks to promote hauora by deepening connections between tāngata, tohunga and atua. Her work centres on adornment and object-making, drawing heavily on materials found in the taiao and on customary and contemporary processes. She has exhibited throughout the Moana Oceania region and internationally, participating in such projects as HANDSHAKE (2010–22), Wunderrūma (2014–16) and the 2016 and 2024 Festivals of Pacific Arts and Culture. In 2023, she was awarded a prestigious Herbert Hofmann Prize at Munich Jewellery Week. Works by Moa are held in the collections of important institutions, including Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, the Dowse Art Museum, and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. She is based in Ōtaki Beach, where many of her rauemi are gathered.
