Alan Pearson

23/01/18 to 18/02/18

For over sixty years British-born Alan Pearson has been one of the outstanding proponents of pure painting in New Zealand art. His work, densely complex, restlessly explorative, remains true to the ethos of Neo-Expressionism, alive with gesture, emotion and insight, rarely rivalled for technical mastery.

My Relics Not My Relics

Josephine Cachemaille

06/03/18 to 18/03/18

Before I got into the storeroom I imagined that the paintings, sculptures and objects might be a family, rife with rifts, loyalties, feuds, loves, and tolerances, held hostage in a building. Fancifully, I thought that maybe I would be a kind of therapist helping them express their inner lives. I assumed they would feel trapped, desperate, disconnected, but mostly they felt quiet and ready. It was weirdly moving.

Noir

Brendan McGorry

20/03/18 to 08/04/18

The circumstances and situations in Brendan McGorry’s art are instilled with a similar consciousness of the transitory nature of the lives of the figures that inhabit his paintings, sculptures and drawings. Yet, McGorry is not unsympathetic to their predicament, providing a companion: a history of art that is close to the artist’s heart and mind, that may also be of assistance to them.

Tropicana

Damien Kurth

10/04/18 to 29/04/18

Damien Kurth’s paintings play with representation in a confounding way. There is nothing deceptive about them, though there is an element of mystery, or the unknowable. They present the viewer with something that is familiar and comforting, yet at the same time subtly challenging. The majority of the objects are vessels of some sort, although their contents and purposes are obscure.

Midnight Love

Cruz Jimenez

23/01/18 to 18/02/18

Midnight Love is a selection of new works in ink on paper by artist Cruz Jimenez. Embracing poetry, Jimenez displays an undeniable expressive quality through this series. With bold brushstrokes and a luxurious palette, the selection of work also shows a fragility and delicacy as the artist works with wafer thin rice paper.

The Dérive

Anita Levering

06/03/18 to 18/03/18

Anita Levering’s painting-based research explores issues connected to chance and intentionality, examining the unpredictability of external forces and chance procedures in the creation of abstract paintings. In her practice, Levering investigates the materiality of paint using addition, dissolution, accumulation, and subtraction or un-doing.

Mother and Daughter on Hiatus

Claudia Edwards

10/04/18 to 29/04/18

The other night my mother and I were talking about things that I do that she finds frustrating. I asked her for an example. She immediately responded with this, “There's a platter of lobster tails for dinner and everybody is eager to go and help themselves, Claudia happens to be the first one to the platter and she will pick the largest tail on the plate ... that’s you.”
