Two rad exhibits I'll be part of this month!
First, fresh from its LA and London tour is the Tiny Travelling Gallery group show with works from 50 wicked artists from all over NZ.
Rad artists include Cinzah, Mica Still, Sean Duffell, Scott Savage, Colleen Pugh, Jinx in the Sky, Xoe Hall, Erin Forsyth, Erika Pearce, Malangeo, Podgypanda and more.
Second, is our 3-person exhibit, MISFITS, alongside Rebecca Ter Borg and Malangeo.
MISFITS is a group exhibition featuring three New Zealand artists who identify their practice as being in the Lowbrow/Pop Surreal space.
Lowbrow (also known as Pop Surrealism) describes a visual art movement that arose in the Los Angeles, California area in the late 1970s. It is a broad term referring to artistic forms relating to popularist culture. This genre's main points of identification are its figurative focus, its cultivation of narrative and its strong valuing of technical skill and craft.
I'll be showing a new body of work on wood, as well as prints.
Both opens at The Depot Artspace on 18 July, Saturday at 2pm and is on till 5 August. Hope to see you there.
