Unique vision of a Taranaki artist

This inspiring piece of writing comes from Taranaki artist Tim Chadwick and is part of a questionnaire he filled out in 2002 for the Taranaki art book communication project.

Question 5 was: what factors have influenced your decision making in terms of themes, topics, subjects, statements and messages your art communicates? Tim’s response is scanned below.

Tim Chadwick was a visionary, and as a teacher promoted art as a means of transcendence for his students from Hawera and Ingelwood high schools. Tragically Tim was killed in a car accident near Piopio in 2010, and his questionnaire was donated to the Aotea Utanganui archives.
