Commissioned by Christchruch Art Gallery for the elevator in the gallery foyer, Reuben Paterson's The End lets you imagine yourself travelling through a dark sky, offering an unexpected space for contemplation and connection.
Paterson drew inspiration from the name of the Gallery building, Te Puna o Waiwhetu, or 'waters in which stars are reflected.'
This is one of many projects designed to welcome visitors back into the building, and celebrate the milestone of the Gallery’s reopening as part of the city’s recovery.
On view at Christchurch Art Gallery from 30 March 2016 - 30 March 2017.
Master glass artist Wendy Fairclough is looking forward to her upcoming six-month residency in Whanganui as the recipient of the Tylee Cottage Residency.
As a first point of research Fairclough will be exploring early settler and indigenous food sources, and hopes to undertake aluminium and bronze casting as well as continuing to work in the cast glass for which she is best known. The works created during her time in Whanganui will reflect the local environs and Fairclough intends to make the most of the Whanganui Museum – “a place I go to every time I go home”.
In 2017 Fairclough will be exhibiting at the Sarjeant Gallery, a place the artist visited throughout her childhood and which she credits with encouraging her development as a young artist.
Fairclough was also recently selected as one of ten finalists in the established artist category for the inaugural Australasian FUSE Glass Prize.
