The Peace Room



Folk across the street, across oceans, across time, have essence values, linking us on Common ground, Solid Ground, Higher Ground, even Sacred Ground.





THE PEACE ROOM is the studio of Aotearoa artist and photographer Maria Tonks. Editor and originator at BRINDLE STYLE ARTISTS NETWORK.


Rather than existing at the expense of the people involved, Brindle Style uses a relational approach to community Indy-Media.  Brindle Style - SCHOOL OF ARTS


"I make my promise Uncle Sam, to bind the new world's top and bottom with light. The telling of our stories will bring history to the world we build... we must fix the stories with firmness and solder the knots with purpose so that they become part of the narratives - the foundations walls and roof all peoples tell about each other." - Witi Ihimaera


"Maiia Brindle's art is a beacon in the night sky like the Southern Cross helping those sailing on the seas of the southern hemisphere to navigate their way to a sustainable future.  Her paintings help us percieve the nature of reality or the reality of nature and the tranquility of the Buddha mind."


Graeme Dunstan"Turn off the tv sets.  Turn towards kindness. Turn to friends who are kind to you and help extend that kindness to others. Speak up and speak out about your fears and concerns. Be visible and be heard. Make art together. Occupy public space and public imagination. Build community. Build resistance. Community resistance. Sustainable resistance.  For the Earth!"
