Future Fiction

Scott Gardiner

11/08/20 to 13/09/20

In 1975, the Hungarian-American psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi coined the expression “the flow”. Call it “the zone” or “mindfulness”, but essentially it is that moment of total, effortless, immersive concentration and energised joy in an activity. Two groups of people who often speak of this mental state are surfers and artists, with a surprising amount of overlap in communities by the sea. Scott Gardiner, also born in 1975, is a surfer who paints, or a painter who surfs, and the two are inexorably entwined in his love of the sea.

Everyone Has A Horse Phase

Claudia Kogachi

25/02/20 to 22/03/20

Kogachi’s newest exhibition follows a fictional narrative of a group of New Zealand races horses who are on hiatus. These horses are tired of competing and simply want to enjoy the pleasantries of being a horse, to take a break and enjoy the summer holiday. Alas, their names are still painted within the picture, suggesting that they are still owned by someone and someday will have to endure returning to the tracks... but for now they are left to roam free, galloping through a forest, to graze or to swim. The work ranges from small ceramics to large landscape and portrait paintings depicting specific moments during their holiday, painted and sculpted in Kogachis flat figurative compositions.

Ray Haydon

12/11/19 to 01/12/19

Negative space is defined by the solid objects it surrounds. This is one of the physical aspects of Ray Haydon’s sculptural practice that really matters; he is actively “painting” the air with materials to fabricate constructions in space.

Call of the Ocean

Freeman White

22/10/19 to 10/11/19

Aotearoa’s lineage of landscape painting began with early colonisation and the visual documentation of the unique and foreign surroundings they encountered upon arrival. This fascination with capturing Aotearoa’s unique beauty has been a continual theme throughout the nation’s art history. Perhaps then unsurprising that this traditional artform has such sustaining power, as the beauty of Aotearoa’s landscape is a defining feature of cultural identity.

Alan Ibell

10/09/19 to 29/09/19

In these new works Alan Ibell builds on an ongoing interest in the canvas as a confining space, in which figures and objects are fixed over the course of the painting process, with the white space of their surrounds a tantalising echo of the white walls of the gallery in which the works hang. Aviary explores this idea through two recurring motifs of confinement: one, the caged bird; and two, the book in which the bound pages contain a finite number of words and thus ideas.
