What’s on @ Lopdell

Serene Thain – Architectural Installation

January 7 2013 - February 9 2013
The materiality of everyday objects in our daily environment is the main interest and focus in many of Serene Thain’s artworks. These objects – found in our drawers, cupboards, bags, shelves in discount stores or hardware shops – are so much a part of our lives that we hardly notice them.

In the Curiosity Cabinet: Ontogeny by Michelle Wilkinson

Exhibition runs 16 January – February 2013
Michelle takes inspiration from elements in nature that are usually too small to be detected by the naked eye or are skimmed over and taken for granted. "I magnify them to create jewellery that contains forms that are at once familiar and unknown, derived from nature, creative explorations of scientific ideas". - Michelle Wilkinson

New glass pieces by John Penman
Growing up between Aotearoa and Hong Kong, John has been influenced by the exotic tropical colours of the Far East, and the rugged natural beauty of New Zealand. His work is a melting-pot of Italian techniques, Chinese design influences and pure Pacific flavour.
