ARTIST TALKS | BRUCE FOSTER, ELIZABETH THOMSON AND GREGORY O’BRIEN
JUNE 22, 11:00AM
Come along to the Gallery for a talk by artists Bruce Foster, Gregory O’Brien and Elizabeth Thomson they will share with you their experiences on Raoul Island and what they encountered on their week long voyage to one of the last great ocean wilderness areas on the planet. They will give you insight into how this experience is reflected in the art they made in response to this trip. The artists will be joined by Bronwen Golder, Director of the Pew Charitable Trusts Global Ocean Legacy.

This talk is free of charge and all are welcome to attend. Following the talk a light lunch will be provided and you will also have the opportunity to talk informally with the artists.

Lily was a nice girl

A preview of works from a new series I am working on. Taken with my homemade lens using old glass from my grandfathers camera. I am working toward an exhibition of these as very large prints but I will do a smaller edition of each as well. Watch this space.

Anyone interested in pre-sales should contact me.

Impromptu

11am Sunday 1An exhibition of my work opens in Wellington next week!

Titled impromptu, this show is a collection of unplanned photos – the sort of moments you stumble across that make you stop and say “Shit that looks great! I have got to photograph that.” And as the name suggests Impromptu has been quickly put together to make the most of a last minute opportunity at the wonderful Deluxe Cafe in Wellington.

Don’t you love it when things come together?

Impromptu is at Deluxe Cafe in the Embassy Theatre building, 10 Kent Terrace Wellington. It runs from the December 16th until Christmas.

I am still deciding of the final selection of works but here are a few that are in the running. Some new and a couple of old faves.

Spirit

Spirit

“Spirit” 2013 Breaker Bay, Wellington
Limited edition (1) – Giclée print on Rag 904 x 1355mm

From the recent Ripple exhibition at Cecil Veda Gallery in Wellington

“Spirit” is the first image from a new longterm project that is exploring the effect New Zealand’s geographic isolation has had on our national psyche in both a contemporary and historical context.

To me this image represents a relationship to the sea, quiet determination and independence the many Kiwis hold dear.

It simultaneously can represent our past, present and future. Is this an historical scene of a pioneer making landfall? Could this boy be our next Peter Blake? Or does he represent all parents hopes that kids can still have simple fun, bare back and without an electronic device in sight?

The title “Spirit” is a reference to the Split Enz song “Six months in a leaky boat” which also is about our geographic isolation.

“When I was a young boy, I wanted to sail around the world
That’s the life for me, living on the sea
Spirit of a sailor, circumnavigates the globe
The lust of a pioneer, will acknowledge no frontier”

Many thanks to my son Morgan for standing in the cold fog for so long
