solo exhibitions - Mixed Feelings & Indivisible

Please join the artists to celebrate the opening of their solo exhibitions Mixed Feelings & Indivisible Wednesday 21 March 5.30 - 7.00pm

Belinda Griffiths: Mixed Feelings Belinda is a conceptual figurative artist based in Auckland. Working within the disciplines of painting and printmaking, her art explores the expressive power of the gestural mark. When coupled with depictions of the human form, this push and pull between mark and form has the potential to dig deeper and communicate something of the human experience that becomes more authentic, more visceral.

Belinda was the recipient of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award in 2010 and The Estuary Artwork Award in 2013. She has been a finalist in the Wallace Art Awards, the NZ Painting and Printmaking Award, and the Adam Portraiture Award. Belinda's work is held in a number of private and public art collections, including the Wallace Arts Trust.

Duncan Pepe Long: Indivisible Auckland artist Duncan Pepe Long exhibits a series of new paintings, lithographs and monotypes, focusing on portraits of friends, and still lives of medical models. The works explore the themes of morality and mortality.

“Although we are made up of many individual parts, and may not even be the same group of molecules and atoms we began as - we are not divisible. We are more than dust. I am fascinated by dark images and I find hope in them. This new series of works were born from anxiety but in making them I have hopefully moved closer to an acceptance.”

Duncan's works have been featured in numerous exhibitions including Solander Gallery’s Woodcut exhibition and most recently MONO: The Painterly Print at Franklin Art Centre and held in various private collections. Duncan is a recent finalist in the Adam Portraiture Awards and is an associate print maker at Auckland Print Studio where he has collaborated with both local and international artists.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
