Wesley John Fourie is an artist based between the Milford Track in UNESCO World Heritage Site Fiordland National Park in New Zealand, and Haridwar in the state of Uttarakhand, India.
Their work is the amalgamation of an interest in the role of queer identity, spirituality, and the relationship between nature and the divine. Between the two countries they create multimedia art that manifests in large scale knitted objects, large scale paintings, and smaller, highly detailed drawings. Their work has also been installative, ephemeral, written, and performative, with a focus on textiles and treating nature as art.
Their work is held in private collections across New Zealand, India, Japan, Germany, Italy, and Australia.

and found on instagram at @wesleyjohnfourie once a month or so.
Due to the nature of working in a forest for six months at a time emails can take a small while to be replied to, but will be checked when possible.
