Exhibition Text

Askew celebrates walking the not-so straight line. Whether playing with pictorial space, the reading of a narrative, or the surface of the picture plane itself, Askew explores how artists use a range of media and materials to challenge the viewer to consider an alternative view.

A sharp diagonal splits Whakapapa Get Down on Your Knees I, referencing Reuben Paterson’s diverse lineage, the past and the present. His signature use of glitter, transforms a material typically viewed as a craft object, into the realm of contemporary art.

Once gracing the grounds of his Zealandia Sculpture Garden, Terry Stringer’s Model with Artist explores multiple unique views in a single sculpture. “It considers the relationship between artist and model and the idea of the artist imposing his view, taking possession of the image.” (1)

Lisa Reihana’s video still Flogging and striking portrait Captain James Cook (Female) from her iconic video work In Pursuit of Venus [infected] throw stereotypes and historical representation off-balance. She suggests that truth and history may be constructed as much as they are experienced.

Joanna Braithwaite skews the relationships between humans and animals while Jeffrey Harris’ expressive and emotive Two Figures explores personal relationships gone awry.
