• David Elliot

In Wind and Waves, artworks by illustrator David Elliot tell stories of life in, on, and near the sea.

Port Chalmers and Otago Harbour – Kōpūtai and Ōtākou – serve as inspiration for many of the works in the exhibition, as do the natural elements, such as wind, which are personified as giant entities that command the weather. Other works look beyond Ōtākou, and by gesturing to David’s love of maps and old books, traverse a watery expanse to explore domains both real and imagined.
