Anne Noble & Deborah Paauwe Photographs 4 Feb.
Anne Noble & Deborah Paauwe Photographs 4 February - 1 March 2003 Opening Tuesday 4 February 5.30pm 147 Cuba St, Wellington
Bartley Nees Gallery starts the year with an exhibition of lusciously coloured, dramatically scaled, sensuous, sensitive and thought-provoking images of young girls by leading New Zealand photographer Anne Noble and hot young Australian artist Deborah Paauwe.
Anne Noble has released some new images from her series Ruby¹s Room - a group of photographs where she has worked with her daughter to capture evocative moments of childhood the almost universal way that children play with their mouths. Deborah Paauwe is a young Australian artist who has been attracting a lot of attention in the past few years with her distinctive images of young girls. Paauwe, amazingly, has had nine solo exhibitions in the past two years and is currently featured on the cover of the Australian Art Collector magazine as one of Australia¹s 50 most collectable artists.
The images from these two artists represent visually stunning photography that is at once highly contemporary and topical - raising interesting questions about the depiction of children and the relationship between the viewer and the viewed, between women and girls, between innocence and knowledge.
Both Anne and Deborah will be at the opening and available for interviews on Monday 3 or Tuesday 4 February. Please join us and the artists for a drink at the opening on Tuesday 4 February at 5.30pm.
