Keith Tallett and Sally Lundburg are artists who navigate shifting cultural landscapes through a range of media, including sculpture, installation, painting, photography, and video. Sharing a studio since returning home to Hawai’i in 2003, they create and exhibit work both independently, and as a collaborative duo. They also operate a small production studio called Mahi’ai Creative, a Hawai’i island homestead & farmstay, Keolamauloa, and are founding members of the Big Island based art collective AGGROculture.

Natural disasters and the resulting rescue efforts are a source of inspiration for our collaborative practice, as well as the structures, language, and tools of shelter and survival. Keith is a second-generation surfboard shaper and tattoo practitioner, with formal training in printmaking and painting. Sally is a documentary filmmaker and photographer, with a studio practice more inspired by process art and DIY survivalists. Combining skills, interests and backgrounds, our projects embody a tension between natural and artificial, exploring themes of community and individualism, ecological and social invasions, and the accumulation of cultural capital.
