Stewart and Sharplin works in New Zealand Limited Ink Art exhibition at Sol Square next week
Retrospective sensual art and holographic photo works feature in the pre-Christmas New Zealand Limited Ink Art exhibition at Sol Square in Christchurch next week.
The three day exhibition opens on
November 26 and features works by Melissa Sharplin and
Anneke Stewart who have both exhibited in the UK and
Sharplin’s exhibition works span last 14 years and consist of originals, limited edition prints and boxes.
The exhibition will show nearly all of Sharplin's work over the years, from pop art and drawings, through to her most recent and popular retro nude series.
Sharplin’s Melissa's works hint of exaggerated beauty. One of her pieces sold at a charity auction for Linwood High School’s trip to China earlier this year for $12,000.
``I like to enhance what I perceive beautiful and I am inspired by images from 'girlie' and fashion magazines over the decades. My pop collection gives a taste of work that shows my more vibrant side,’’ Sharplin said.
Stewart, from Wanaka, will be showing digitally reproduced prints that are highlighting the best works of her last few years of commissioned and exhibited art.
``My work in this show is mainly photographic and motion print imaging work on wood or light boxes,’’ Stewart said. ``I am fascinated by the fact that each viewer responds or is attracted to different individual light energy paintings.’’
A multidimensional artist, Stewart’s artwork incorporates painting, sculpture, spray-painting, ink drawing, text, photography and lenticular imaging, an animated two- dimensional art form. Her work for this exhibition is multidimensional and interactive.
For the last six years she has been the official backstage photographer for NZ Fashion Week.
