Jamie Te Heuheu (Ngāti Tūwharetoa) is an artist based in Ōtautahi Christchurch. Te Heuheu graduated from the Ilam School of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury in 2020 with First Class Honours, and in 2021 co-founded The Den, an artist-run space in Christchurch that profiled emerging artists in the city, The Den closed with its final showcase at the Aotearoa Art Fair in 2022.
Te Heuheu’s current series of colour field paintings explore the limits of the formal qualities of abstract artmaking, with an emphasis on process and brushwork, to explore how colour, line, texture, and applied processes can evoke varied moods and feelings while leaving room for the viewer to bring their own experiences and emotions to the work.
