Thom and Barry at Te Uru

Review of Homeworld at Te Uru, written by John Hurrell for EyeContact, 2015

“In Te Uru’s pairing of these artists’ works there is a certain amount of interactive wit, because Barry’s highly tactile drawings have a lot of spatial depth and Thom likes to push the opposite, emphasising with striations the flat planar surfaces of her compact, blocklike sculpture”

Joanna Brathwaite in latest Mindfood Style

Acclaimed artist Joanna Braithwaite invites MiNDFOOD Style into her workroom to chat about everyday inspiration, the whimsy of art, style in the studio and why she’s drawn to the animal kingdom.

Joanna explains … “Animals often take the lead in my paintings and often they are performing in a human way or saying something about their relationship with humans,'’ … “I think peoples relationships with animals are very interesting … It’s bizarre the way we can compartmentalise things so that we can be extremely close with some animals and eat others. I’m also drawn to the animal world for its abundance of variety, texture and colour.”

Excerpt from MiNDFOOD Style. Spring/Summer 2015

 


Anya Sinclair at Tauranga Art Gallery

New works from Dunedin artist Anya Sinclair feature in The Garden of Forking Paths, which opens on 15 November, and runs through the summer months at the Gallery. The exhibition features 18 of the artist’s works.

The exhibition title is derived from a 1941 short story by Argentinian writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges. Anya Sinclair’s works evoke both her upbringing in the rambling bush of Auckland’s Waiktakere Ranges, but also bring in the sensory experiences of her travels to Brazil. In the work Sinclair’s favoured lush and deep greens shine, in particular where nature has been somewhat tamed by civilisation then has reclaimed its territory.

The Gallery is thrilled to be supporting the New Zealand Garden & Art Festival 2014.
