Aratoi is our local gallery in Masterton. I haven't been there for months and went with Pippa Moore a visitor from Canada. We were both so glad we went, there was a wonderful exhibition by New Zealand print-makers curated by Dr Carole Shepheard.
This was a series of fabric layers that lifted in any wind and were hazy just like the photograph.
Another soft fabric piece.
This was clever - another piece with layers. It had the three-dimensional shape of a head/skull, the images were laid over it.
I have seen a few of Jeff Thomson's pieces constructed out of roofing iron but nothing quite like this with screen printing.
It was interesting to see how many of the exhibition pieces had a three dimensional form and threw the most wonderful shadows.
Several pieces used a form reminiscent of a folded book form.
The video that accompanied this piece was lovely and is worth seeing as well. This piece was my favourite. I can recommend going to see the exhibition, in Masterton or hopefully it may be on near by where you live.
