Laura Marsh

The Trusts 27th Art and Sculpture Awards, Waitakere

Abstract Merit, Laura Marsh,
Untitled,watercolour on paper

Showing full control of the difficult medium of watercolour in the overlay of colours this artist is able to create a delicate pattern purely in pastels.
Mathematically complex, yet simple and evocative of crystals, origami and organic structures abundant in nature.
Judge, Linda Tyler

Louise Purvis

Summer of sculpture, artist initiated project for public space, 23 sculptural works, Wynyard Quarter, Auckland 1 Feb – 14 March

Louise Purvis’s imposing steel gridded architectural form seems designed specifically for the space we see it in, yet like all the works here, it was made last year. It fits so well, especially with the metal roller door behind it, that it can’t be imagined on another site: it’s thoroughly thought out. Part skeletal building, part fairground complex and part industrial machinery, Silo Construction looks as if it could have been designed by Sol LeWitt, for its repeated cube module has an intricacy that holds your attention.
