  • Biography

    I assemble original photography, assorted papers, acrylics, oil, charcoal, ink, and pencil in my works. The variety of resources I am able to use has proved indispensable to me. The biggest challenge the collage medium posed was its unforgiving lack of transparency. Finding a way to replicate the effects of transparency afforded by paint, especially watercolors, was a large victory for me. The preparing labor shows through in my collages; layer upon layer of material remains visible in the finished pieces. I believe my body of work is characterized by my skill for reinvention. Having always loved the appearance of weathered walls plastered with peeling paint and old posters, I revive this aesthetic with hopefully a keen and professional eye. The creative objective of my work is to “make something beautiful out of dilapidation.” My tableaus explore the dissonance between old and new materials, intertwined in the most beautiful way possible to create dreamlike and melancholy images.

    We are thrilled to be bringing original Dutch art to Parnell, for although the artists involved have found success on their home turf, this show will mark their first foray into the New Zealand art world. Visitors to the gallery will be treated to a dynamic group show featuring the work of over 10 established Dutch and Kiwi-Dutch artists.

    This exhibition will run from the 20th of August to 20th of May 12016 - plenty of time to stop by and experience a taste of incredible Dutch art!
