‘Solid Colour: Part I’ features five New Zealand artists whose work across varied practices – including painting, sculpture, installation and video – shares differing yet consistently distinctive expressions of colour. Exhibited will be cast-glass sculptures by Galia Amsel who manipulates colour through the use of the light capturing and transmitting medium to bring her signature forms to life, as well as prestigious painter Stephen Bambury’s early works which are particularly powerful presentations of colour. In addition, Helen Calder’s poured paint skins which materialise in sculptural, solid forms with intriguing textures, will be contrasted against the softer slippages of colour in Marie Le Lievre’s paintings. And multidisciplinary artist Shannon Novak will be presenting a site-specific installation inspired by the gallery’s building architecture, that will transcend the ‘Part I’ exhibition forming a bridge to ‘Solid Colour: Part II’ which will begin late September.
The exhibition has now finished.
