This new exhibition brings together four emerging New Zealand-based artists who share a devotion to texture, mark making, materiality and form.
Nikau Hindin is reawakening the process of making aute, Māori tapa cloth, and mapping the Stars, Salome Tanuvasa’s simple instinctive line drawings are here rendered in fabric, Sam Kelly translates familiar and intricate textures into cow bone, and Tyler Jackson manipulates acrylic sheets to challenge our perceptions of light and colour.
Exhibition opens: 5:30–7:30pm Thursday 29 August 2019
