Kay George is a senior New Zealand and Pacific artist. Living between New Zealand and the Cook Islands for the past 35 years, George has observed and documented significant societal change within a Pacific context. Her extensive body of work generated over that time includes textiles, paintings, collage, installation, and photography.

George’s oeuvre presents the viewer an engaged, personal perspective, the artist living and working within a small Pacific community, bearing witness to substantial social evolution set within the political and economic subtext of the Cook Islands daily relationship with its post-colonial regional partner, New Zealand.

Issues of identity, migration, environmental and communal flux are indelible within the rich, coloured layers that have become synonymous with this artists practice.

Kay George’s CV includes exhibitions and workshops in Cook Islands, New Zealand, France, United States, Australia and New Caledonia.
