Uphill downhill series No 1

Title: Uphill downhill series No 1
Date: 2017
Status: For Sale
Medium: Acrylic painting on plywood with bespoke macrocarpa frame
Size: 630 x495mm
Price: $650 NZ

 

 

 

Description:

Someone once told me to “Get Real”. Within the context, they simply meant to get with the programme. They wanted me to be able to see and work inside parameters, to believe in a certain construct and way of thinking. What I realised was that my reality was different from theirs.

A lingering question revealed itself. What is real? Apparently, something that is true, that exists. Yet how does our personal perception sit with truth. Does everyone have their own truths?

This exhibition is an abstract chat about reality.

When I think of the real I see landscapes. So, I explored nature in a search to define the real. Instead I always found myself in nature. With these experiences in mind the resulting abstract paintings are real to me.

Totally under control

Title: Totally under control

Date: 2017

Medium: Reduction woodcut on Fabriano paper
Size: 560mm H x 390mm W, 
Price: $280 Unframed $395 Framed

Description:

‘Status Symbols’

Status symbols are a visible expression of social standing. Luxury goods including Art are often seen in this manner. Limited edition prints play with the idea of the multiple and are by their very nature collector’s items.

A toothbrush however, is apparently not something one normally thinks of to describe a life. Usually we see someone’s new single status on Facebook or follow a car laden with bumper stickers proclaiming the owner has a family that consists of a man, a woman, three kids and a chicken.

This series came in reaction to the shiny projections of self. Inspired instead from the banal and everyday lived experience. As one day I was struck by the sheer number of untidy toothbrushes I now live with and how that represented my family.

I was transported back to a time where keeping my pristine toothbrush alongside someone else’s was a personal big deal. This series uses toothbrushes to examine stages of my relationship evolution and hopefully opens you to think of yours.

There is no perfect arrangement, like us they belong to their environment and evolve to take on a life of their own.

Beauty and the beast

Title: Beauty and the beast
Date: 2015
Status: For sale
Medium: Acrylic paint and etching on wooden panels
Size: Diptych 500mm H x 500mm W each panel
Price: $1000 NZ

Description: Beauty and the beast’ is a painted diptych that was created in response to moving to the country, where physical tasks made me question my position on the roles we take. I have been influenced by New Zealand Feminist painters Sylvia Siddell and Jacqueline Fahey, as they too have been inspired by their surrounding environments.

The subject matter of a vacuum cleaner and a chainsaw, symbolise gender norms and question their relevance in today’s world. These everyday objects take on lives and can be seen as people duelling and or one person’s internal gender battle. I have used typical male and female colours to play and mixed the balance. The title alludes to the fairy tale story, but in this open ended narrative the beast is the vacuum cleaner, which plays the part of irrational powerful woman whilst the chainsaw is the calm male antagonist.

There is no resolution just a constant push and pull between the two, as they fight for roles, power and balance
