Whanganui UCOL Fine Arts lecturer Andrea Du Chatenier has two works on show in new exhibitions at TheNewDowse gallery in Lower Hutt.

The gallery is showing works from the 16th Annual Wallace Art Awards, described as New Zealand's richest, longest running and most provocative contemporary art award.

In the Wallace Awards, Andrea received one of two Runner Up awards for her work, a sculpture made of hand-dyed wool.

Her work also features in another NewDowse exhibition entitled Beasts which showcases a “menagerie of animal-inspired artworks”, chosen from TheNewDowse collection.

Andrea’s work, called Horse, is a horse mask in lilac, green and orange, made from PVC. She regularly uses animal imagery in her work and describes Horse as a modern-day take on an ancient idea.

“The earliest forms of art making were ritualised performances so it is certainly a play on that. In these rituals they would often call on animal spirits for special powers,” she says.

The Wallace Arts Awards exhibition is open until 30 March. Beasts runs until 27 April.
