Thursday - two days before opening and all hands on deck to install all the work (well - most hands on deck.....) It's so exciting, and a bit scary too, before an exhibition; how will the work look in the gallery - how it'll all 'fit' together and how much space we actually have for all the work.... More photos to come after the opening!
Our pathway to this exhibition began as a cohort of MFA students at Whitecliffe College of Art and Design from 2008-10. A close-knit group, we supported each other through our studies, the critiques and group shows. Our connection continued as we met for regular seminars and reviewed each other’s work and ideas. Our friendships run deep.
‘Estranged’ expresses each of our personal responses to a world that has shifted its axis and tilted into strangeness. Each artist has considered the theme from personal, local or global viewpoints. The common thread is the link to our humanity. As this project unfolded and our work developed it became clear in our seminars how many strands were connected. Motifs and colours serendipitously related. This project has come to have more poignancy and impact for each of us.
We are delighted to share with you our exhibition ‘Estranged’.
