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.

Open Weekdays 8am - 4pm and Saturdays 9am - 2pm

Simon Nathan: No Ordinary In-Laws

The title of this short memoir by Keith Ovenden is misleading – it would be better called “Bill, Shirley and me” as it is an account of Ovenden’s memories of his parents-in-law, Bill Sutch and Shirley Smith. His presence is pervasive through the book. All three participants are (or were) eloquent, strongly-opinionated intellectuals who have made significant contributions to different aspects of New Zealand life. Their interactions were often complex and difficult... More>>
