Chris Heaphy's New Work for the Christchurch Transitional Cathedral Square project

Chris Heaphy's work for this project is instantly recognisable in its geometric and symbolic style. Panels adorned with emblematic patterns of sign blend Pakeha and Maori symbols (an allusion to Heaphy's exploration of his bicultural identity) in circular patterms that suggest the Cathedral's since removed rose window. Watch a short clip on Heaphy discussing the project and its importance to him as an artist.
