              Kelcy Taratoa: Who Am I? Episode 001 (Hardback)

              Who Am I? is a question at the centre of what it is to be human and for artist Kelcy Taratoa (Ngai Te Rangi, Ngati Ranginui, Ngati Raukawa) it has formed the sub-ject of his painting for two decades. Kelcy Taratoa: Who Am I ?... Episode 001 is a bilingual English and Te Reo publi...cation written by Warren Feeney and translated by Heni Jacob (Ngati Raukawa). It traverses the artist's life from growing up in the suburbs of Levin to Te Haka a Te Tupere, the artist's wharenui at Rangiwaea marae in Tauranga Harbour. Through his paintings he contends that contemporary technology's virtual realities and appetite for destruction and distraction is undermining our humanity and experience of the world. Yet painting, that most ancient means of visual communication, is something that continues to remind us of our humanness.

              Two years after graduating, Kees Bruin was exhibiting alongside Leo Bensemann, Don Binney, Doris Lusk, Trevor Moffitt, Peter Siddell, Olivia Spencer-Bower, Grahame Sydney, Robin White, and Brent Wong. For more than five decades of dedicated painterly practice and exhibition, Kees... Bruin has established a unique visionary identity within the framework of New Zealand realism that is enthusiastically commissioned and collected internationally. His three overlapping categories: photo-realism, super-realism and what he terms "visionary-realism," sprung from a personal search for all things truth hence his clever use of symbol, have gifted us exquisite panoramic landscapes, expressions of cultural pursuits such as surfing and skateboarding often imbued with metaphor, single and group portraits, reinterpretations of masters, especially the Dutch Golden Age, elaborated 'still-lifes' and works that explore elements of western Judaeo-Christian histories combined with contemporaneous fashions, settings and views to and from the earth. This personal genre launches us as art viewers into emotional odysseys of timeless human concern: Spirituality, the universe, beauty, truth, life and death, sex, betrayal, vanity and loss, as well as using paint to express beauty for its own sake.

              Afghanistan, 1827. Suleiman stood in the carnage of his village. At twenty years old he was a man. "I am Suleiman! I take my birthright as Horse Master of all Farkhar". He raised his sword, pointing west to Persia. "No longer will Prince Omid's men plunder Afghanistan. We will fo...llow you, Persians. We will seize your horses and restore our honour. We will invade!" Welcome to The Saffron Runners, the adventures of a bold band of brothers who make a fantastic journey from Hindu Kush to desert to fabled cities and back across the Border of Flags. There is only one thing on their minds: The horses. And only one Horse Master who can lead them. A tale of daring, deception, desperation and incredible action, The Saffron Runners will have your heart pounding as you urge the heavenly horses on, gallop with the drinkers of the wind, and thrill to hot-blooded chases spiced with mystery and romance ... and always, always, the lure of a destiny to be fulfilled. Outstandingly well researched and brimming with historical detail, if you want a real page-turner, this is it.
