Book: The Dark is Light Enough: Ralph Hotere (December 2020)

By Vincent O'Sullivan

December 8, 2020

Ralph Hotere (Te Aupouri and Te Rarawa; 1931-2013) was one of Aotearoa’s most significant modern artists.

Hotere invited the poet, novelist and biographer Vincent O’Sullivan to write his life story in 2005.

Now, this book – the result of years of research and many conversations with Hotere and his fellow artists, collaborators, friends and family – provides a nuanced, compelling portrait of Hotere: the man, and the artist.
