Exhibition - The Painter and the Glassmaker - 9th Feb 2016

Exhibition - The Painter and the Glassmaker

Following the success of the 2015 exhibition at David Lloyd Gallery, Jennie de Groot and I will join forces again this March to present The Painter and the Glassmaker at Soul Gallery, Hamilton.

The combination of my cast glass pieces alongside Jennie’s painterly, abstracted landscapes make a complementary pairing.

In my collection of ‘moments’, figures set upon suitcases may be travelling to new places, waiting patiently for a companion or perhaps have been left behind. The figures are universal, in that they are not bound by specific identities - their form is simplified to a representation of humanity to more directly convey broader ideas about relationships, memory and connection.

Jennie shares this idea of not giving too much away, describing her new paintings as “walking a line between suggestion and representation - there is more ambiguity than before.” Enjoying the tension between realism and expression, Jennie’s recent works are an exciting evolution in her practice.

We will post regular updates leading up to the exhibition on our facebook page.
