Here my 3 works are hanging beside MiSun Kim’s gorgeous ink on paper work & Howard Tuffery’s stunning andesite sculpture.
Vital Transformations is the name of this exhibition & it is on at 'Koru on Devon' a gallery space, upstairs at 18b Devon St East, New Plymouth.
These 3 works were selected to part of ‘Vital Transformations : Mauri Ora’ which comprises 3 exhibitions held in 3 different locations in the New Plymouth CBD over the month of July.
The entire exhibitions feature almost 30 works by as many artists.
Each exhibition has a different kaupapa (theme) & the works have been curated accordingly.
It’s a quiet & unpretentious event with a message that is not immediately apparent.
The curator, Ian Clothier, has written an essay for each exhibition which hangs alongside.
The last two images are of a couple of pages of the essay he wrote to hang with this exhibition & include his interpretation of our works.
It has been wonderful to be part of this exhibition.
It is wonderful to be in the company of people who feel & think about environmental things with the passion , enthusiasm & love that I feel for the world we live in.
Ian's attention to detail, selection & grouping of works allows each piece the time & space for it's voice to heard.
