HOLY FIRE is now open at Chambers Art Gallery, showcasing ten of my works from Bangkok.
After spending so long developing images and working with 'theoreticals', it was satisfying-to-the-core to finally see some completely, utterly, thoroughly finished artworks. Ronald Mottram Picture Framers even got the lithographs framed over the weekend and hung perfectly into the space.
I am grateful and indebted to the people that responded to my emails and calls when I needed help during the past few weeks. Usually I am pridefully independent, but it was heart-warming and humbling to know that there was a community of artists and friends who were willing to lend their wisdom, time and support - especially John Pusateri, of the Auckland Print Studio, without whom this exhibition probably wouldn’t have happened. I have actually never met John, but he was generous with his resources, experience, and always responded to my unusual print queries while I was working in the lonely hours of the Ilam Print Studio; a total exhibition-saver!
And as usual, it was a rambling, people and conversation-filled delight working with the Chambers team!
