In Transit Exhibition by Ruby Bay artist Lisa Chandler

In Transit Exhibition by Ruby Bay artist Lisa Chandler
RED Gallery, Nelson

An exhibition of new works by Lisa Chandler based on a three day art project she undertook at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in April this year. Chandler wandered the airport through a series of random and planned walks, gaining invaluable insight into the transitory nature of this generic space.

As a new development in Chandler's art practice she is excited to be presenting a series of works of paper. These new works continue her exploration of image making to evoke the passage of people through non-places, in a combination of print-making and collage.

Chandler chose printmaking - as a key aspect of this medium is the layering of one printed image over the top of another - a process which is very similar to the layering and obliteration techniques she employs in her painting. For this series she uses the printmaking techniques of monotype and collograph. The subtractive monotype technique of wiping ink off the plate prior to printing offers wonderful painterly marks and the opportunity for the unexpected to occur. This unknown quality increases as each layer is added and makes each finished print unique and 1 of 1.

The collage elements of the prints are taken from the photographs she took at KLIA. All materials used are archival quality.

As part of the exhibition, Chandler is giving a floor talk. Hear more about her process and some interesting tales about her time at KLIA. 2pm on Saturday 15th September.

In Transit is opening on Friday 7th September at 5.30pm, all welcome and the exhibition runs until the 27th September.

RED Gallery, 1 Bridge Street, Nelson
Open Weekdays 8am - 4pm and Saturdays 9am - 2pm

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
