Gow Langsford Gallery warmly invites you to the opening of John Pule’s solo exhibition Still not close enough on Tuesday 18 May 2021 from 5-7pm.

Nicholas Thomas, a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, has written an essay on this new body of work which is also included in a catalogue published along with the exhibition. In an excerpt from this essay, Thomas writes:

“The paintings which make up this exhibition center upon a famous and extraordinary dimension of Polynesian history. For two hundred and fifty years, European travelers and scientists, and Islanders themselves, have been astonished by the voyages over millennia that led to the settlement of the sea of islands. Questions of exactly where Islanders came from, when and how they voyaged, and why they might have left former homelands to attempt passages across vast expanses of the open ocean have long been vigorously debated. Over recent years, archaeological research has done much to refine understandings of Oceania’s maritime past, essentially in support of the kinds of narratives of deliberate, exploratory voyaging expressed in traditional history and myth.”
