Artstation's Ingredients a recipe for success

Artstation's Ingredients a recipe for success

The Artstation Gallery dishes up a diverse mix of art from over 20 Auckland artists in Ingredients, the Artstation Tutors’ Exhibition from 11 to 29 May 2004.

The exhibition creates an opportunity for viewers to encounter a curious assortment of art and ideas by bringing together artists who do not usually exhibit in the same gallery setting.

Ingredients combines the varied art practices of the Artstation tutors in one show. The mix includes cast glass, photography, painting, mosaic, sculpture, print making and domestic craft. The fusion of different materials, methods and ideas allows unexpected relationships between art works to unfold. Like a recipe, particular combinations reveal new qualities.

Gallery Administrator Eve Armstrong says, “Ingredients isn’t based on a particular theme. We decided that exploring various ideas and art practices would better represent the artists and the Artstation community.”

Artists in Ingredients have selected work that reflects their diverse interests. Painter Matthew Browne explores the emotive impact of colour in his abstract paintings. In contrast, installation artist Trish Scott uses simple repetitive processes to record and document the everyday. Themes range from the natural landscape to memory, and from architecture to domesticity.

A range of artists will be discussing their work in the show and their varied art practices at the artists’ talk at 7pm on Thursday 20 May at the Artstation Gallery. Ingredients, Artstation Tutors’ Exhibition information: Artists: Eve Armstrong, Claire Barton, Robin Binsley, Matthew Browne, Jarad Bryant, Julie Downie, Andrea Gaskin, Christine Gregory, Gabrielle Hoffman, Nicole Lucas, Kate McLean, Anna Rae, Beth Serjeant, Trish Scott, Liz Sharek, Sara Smallman, Zarahn Southon, Jane Zusters Opening: Tuesday 11 May 2004, 5 – 7pm Exhibition: 11 – 29 May 2004 Artists’ Talk: Thursday 20 May, 7pm

Artstation, Auckland City’s community visual arts facility, is located at the old police barracks at 1 Ponsonby Rd, Newton. It is easy to get to by public transport with the Link’s ‘Artstation’ bus stop right outside.
