Ani O’Neill’s artwork frequently references the traditional Pacific arts of lei, weaving, crochet and tivaevae (appliqué). The inspiration for There’s No Place Like Home came when she was the artist in residence at the Rita Angus Cottage during 1997, where she became inspired by a pandanus placemat.

‘Since I was living in a painter’s cottage I wanted to make works that worked as paintings…When you stood in the room the circles had an eye-popping, decentralising effect, they made your eyes bounce around.’
