Artists ped­dling their wares to Kura Gallery are told their works need to tell a Kiwi story. The store has a no-im­ports pol­icy, which Auck­land man­ager Annabelle Buick says taps into a grow­ing de­sire among New Zealan­ders to con­nect with ob­jects “from our own back­yard that tell some­thing about who we are”.

If you’re af­ter a spe­cial piece of Kiwi art for your home, she sug­gests tak­ing your time and wait­ing to find some­thing that res­onates with your own life. It might be a paint­ing of a land­scape where you grew up, or a tree or bird or colour that sparks me­mories.
