Despite the variety of art forms and the number of active artists working, Peter expresses concern for the future of art in Papua New Guinea.

Some of the people working have a name recognised not only at home but also internationally, but they are in the minority. Many artists sell their art at local craft markets or by word of mouth.

In many instances it is the tourist trade that is driving the type of artwork that is being produced. While some exhibitions are held, there is no formal group in place or regular exhibitions organised for artists to have a focus or to gain recognition.

It is important for Papua New Guineans to find their place in a world being dominated by western culture, and to define who they are. Art is one way of doing this, not only for painters, but also for potters, writers, designers, musicians and playwrights.

We cannot let the past fade into extinction because it defines where we came from and who we are. Nor can we ignore the modem world and how that has an impact on whom we are.

Andrew Solien

in the story about Peter Ella I noticed a reference to a young author, Andrew Solien.

I would like to contact Andrew by email if possible.
