About Faith McManus:


Faith McManus (Ngāpuhi, Ngai Takoto) is an expert in the print process, predominantly working with woodcut, paper and painterly applications of ink to explore stories, pattern and colour. She plays with the conventions of woodcut, sign and ornamentation to construct new interrelationships. Her practice investigates ideas about genealogy, cultural memory and personal narrative and the interconnectedness of ancestry, mythology and culture.

Faith holds a Diploma of Fine Arts (Honours) from Otago Polytechnic, a Master of Fine Arts from RMIT University, Melbourne, and a Diploma of Teaching from the Dunedin College of Education. Faith has exhibited widely in Aotearoa and internationally in Australia, The United States and Japan. She is a founding member of the Māori Printmaking Collective and is regularly involved in cultural art exchanges and artist residencies. Faith joins us this summer from Whangārei where she is a lecturer in drawing, printmaking, Intermedia, Pacific Studies and Art History at NorthTec.
