Neither Here Nor There: Eion Shanks
Eion says about his work: I am Artist & Other. Since 2016 I have again, for the fourth time, ensconced myself in Oamaru. Painting is my way of both obscuring and giving back my ‘take’ on the world. I have done this steadily from the time I could hold a crayon. These new works are both internal & external views of my life here & beyond Oamaru.
