Sanc Gallery, Auckland, 2021

Tugging tribulations are described in the paintings in No Hem: Handling deviance in inhabited worlds. Figures inhabiting interior spaces are still, while the presence of the other is felt, the figures remain de-socialised from one another. The works hold pestering forces and dubious future conditions.

Nine Artists

Book by Danae Ripley

Nine Artists collects different movements in painting, drawing and sculpture by Aotearoa artists. The articles, interviews and short essays chart practices devoted to the task of arranging form and its infinite potential, whether through colour, brushwork, shape or line.

'Painting for me is fundamental, it’s tied into dreaming up a better world. The inspiration comes from being very moved by paintings, they are incredible non-verbal things.'
