Selves by Scott Eady

Selves

Scott Eady

21 August to 09 September 2018

Scott Eady’s new exhibition Selves is an exploration of identity both personally and collectively, physically and online. Eady’s self-identity has largely been constructed through more than 20 years of exhibiting and making art, in particular sculptural works. In this new series of works, Eady reconsiders the self-portrait through the medium of painting - an art form entirely new to him – and thus, an opposition to the ‘self’ the artist has constructed in his former art making years.

Elements of Euclid

Karyn Taylor

25/09/18 to 14/10/18

In this new body of work, ‘Elements of Euclid', Taylor is working with colour as an expression of light as she attempts to solidify it. She is exploring wave-particle duality, the concept in quantum mechanics that every particle or quantic entity may be partly described in terms not only of particles, but also of waves. The differing wavelengths that determine each colour, along with the solidity of the art object itself, recall these ideas in quantum physics.

Here Comes the Sun by Wendy Kawabata

Here Comes the Sun

Wendy Kawabata

21 August to 09 September 2018

Here Comes the Sun is a firm return to painting. The exhibition is a selection of Kawabata's recent investigations into color, light, and textile structure within abstraction. These paintings of polygonal cairns, bucolic settings, and geometric networks, are colorful totems made to empower and charm. Apart from when polygonal cairns are centrally presented, color is not used to describe, rather its presence both suggests and undermines space and form. These cairns serve as trail markers for and personifications of the painter, signposts enabling her to wander a bit but make her way back to the path..

Upcoming Room 2

Fertile Ground

Paris Kirby

11/09/18 to 23/09/18

An exhibition of new works exploring New Zealand’s landscape painting history. A selection of 20th-century Pakeha women painters have served as the starting point for Paris Kirby’s latest exhibition Fertile Ground. Small-scale painted reproductions of iconic works by artists including Rita Angus, Dorothy Richmond and Doris Lusk are inset in each of Kirby’s large-scale paintings. The inserted reproductions serve both as an inspiration for the artists chosen palette, and as a reference point for her exploration into Aotearoa’s colonial and art historical past.

Headforemost

Stephen Ellis

25/09/18 to 14/10/18

Stephen Ellis’s newest body of work Headforemost is a suite of four large scale, intricate ball point pen drawings that capture and comment on local history. Ellis’s works are awe inspiring. With a commitment to both process and the research grounding the work, he layers meaning and technique to create works that intrigue. Working in the humble ball point pen, Ellis’s large scale works are truly unique and have to be seen in person to understand his mastery of line, light and composition.
