Seven Artists Converge To Launch New Artistic Space on Auckland’s K’Rd

“Lineage”, a collection of multi-disciplined artwork from seven local artists, is being held at The Salon, a new artistic space at the iconic Ironbank in Auckland, from December 5 - 19.

Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s “For we think through our mothers, if we are women”, the artwork represents seven different journeys, self-preservation and struggle and the authenticity and rawness of relationships.

It’s the first exhibition to be held at The Salon; a shared space for artistic expression and exchange. “Lineage” will showcase work from Jillian Friedlander, Sue Dickson, Dorota Broda, Susan Wells, Alvie McKree, Denise Murphy and Jill Varani.

First-time exhibitor Jillian Friedlander presents “Pearls of Wisdom”, a collection of raw black and white photographs, and bold colourful paintings celebrating autumn in Arrowtown and the popcorn carnival of summer.

“It’s all about the layers of life. I want to show people as they are. Wrinkles, freckles; they’re all characteristics of life. Whether it’s good, bad or in between – the wonders of age are what gives you wisdom,” she says. “Life experience teaches you to look at things in a different light and appreciate the simple things in life.”

Jillian Friedlander says the The Salon is a haven for non-established and established artists to come and exchange creative ideas and inspiration.

“Ironbank is an ideal place to foster and harbour free creative thinking – there’s already a dynamic community of creative talent here and it’s really exciting to be a part of it.”
