by Leo Tanoi

6pm-9pm opening

DJ Black President, Sydney

Gallery open 3-6pm Daily


Born in New Zealand and currently residing in Sydney, Tanoi is a resident of Sydney Australia for 26 years. Tanoi has worked here in Sydney with the Pacific community in many capacities for over a decade across a few industries. As the Creative Producer Pacific Programs in the past, Tanoi curated and advised Pacific exhibitions

and events at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre  from 2010 to 2015. Tanoi through the visual arts language looks to express some thoughts and ideas regarding his life in general. Tanoi also looks at random aspects of his complex Samoan cultural heritage and identity through his paintings and future art making.  With relatively no experience as a visual artist Tanoi has worked with leading Contemporary Artists of the region as he navigates contemporary art making.

Artist Statement:
‘ Po’ in Samoan language is ‘Night’, The black ‘Uliuli’ .

The ‘Po-Sini abstraction 2017 ‘ exhibition is the first of a two part
exhibition series.The following exhibition of this experimental series
later this year will be  titled ‘Ao’  Day.

Po (Night) and Ao (day) is a homage to the cosmos and to  Tanoi’s
Samoan, Polynesian and Pacific ancestors. Tanoi explores the distances
and relationships of lines, symmetry, shapes , genealogy, time , space
and matter.

Tanoi’s works are a multitude and collective of past ,present and
developing ideas and  thoughts  reflections that are further expressed
and fussed within his new practice. The exhibitions present paintings
and anaudio visual work.
Tanoi’s Po residency exhibition is a mixture of dark colourful
experimentation with the ‘dark night’  one of many themes utilized in
minimal abstraction for this exhibition.

I would like to thank Rohan Wilson and team for his support of this
exhibition, through the residency program.
The opportunity to make work in any space is an honour.
