Peata Larkin (1973-) Peata Larkin is of Ngāti Whakaue, Ngāti Tūwharetoa, and Ngāti Tuhourangi descent. Larkin graduated of the Elam School of Fine Arts, and completed her Master’s degree at RMIT University, Melbourne. Larkin draws from twentieth-century theories of abstraction in painting and at the same time uses patterns which are layered with meaning and firmly embedded within te ao Māori. Her painterly ‘pixels’ allude to digital information, binary opposites, and the gridlines of weaving.
