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.
Phew, my exhibition is hanging in Caterton at "Heart of Arts", 47 High Street and I have sold two pieces. I am still trying to get my life back on track, back on the plan and know that things will get done.
Phew it is done. I am sure these steps are embedded in my brain. How do you remember these sorts of systems? Do you have a folder labelled systems somewhere or like me, at the moment, is it just in your head?
