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.Forrester Gallery10 March 2018 to 15 April 2018
