Art comes in many forms
Corban Estate Art Centre

Corban Estate Arts Centre's latest exhibitions feature artists Laura Marsh, Galia Amsel and Chiara Corbelletto. These three exhibitions are on display from 7 March till 13 April 2014.

A Thinner Line is an installation of artworks by Laura Marsh that collectively consider the line between life and death. Marsh’s latest exhibition features new works developed during her time in Colombia, South America on an artist’s residency.

Internationally acclaimed glass artist Galia Amsel’s survey exhibition Take Ten, showcases ten cast glass works. These works represent ten years of making since leaving the UK and settling in West Auckland. We see the fundamental influence the surrounding landscape and climate has had on Amsel’s evolving glass practice.

Chiara Corbelletto’s Morphic Field 2 presents a series of floating and ethereal sculptural works, visualizing how forms may emerge from space. Corbelletto’s selection of sculptures are inspired by current theories in physics, and transformed by the idea of a unified field of potentiality as the ultimate fabric of reality.

On offer is a full range of free art gallery activities. Auckland based artists Galia Amsel and Chiara Corbelletto will give artist talks at CEAC’s Open Arts Day Saturday 29 March at 11am and 2pm. Laura Marsh will be making string drawings at her kids workshop Saturday 5 April, 11am. All materials provided, no bookings required.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
