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
