The lead in to the exhibition was Åste`s new animation projected onto fabric banners moving in the breeze. It explores her first month on arriving in New Zealand from Oslo, a fun idea with lots of possibilities for future projects and collaborations.
Intimate Encounters Be enchanted by sparkling sculptures, dance with viruses and enjoy intimate conversation surrounded by expansive paintings. This White Night, at least 5 Auckland artists invite you to their sleepless night including Ronald Andreassend, Karen Chan, Isla Osborne, Anita Glucina, Kathy Ready, Raynor Dunn, Peter Viesnik and several more to come.
You know its the summer holidays when Ponsonby is hot and empty- its a good time to play around.
Digging out the half finished pieces, rummaging through boxes and flicking through old sketchbooks. Music at full volume drowning out the phone, its self indulgent bliss and a good way to start the year
More murals for the former Soho development. The murals are nearing completion and should be finished before Progressive Enterprise starts construction in April 2013
The enhancement continues with the cartdock roller door getting the treatment. Apart from the side walls and ceiling next up is the roof and a side wall which I can`t get to easily, might just have to dribble paint from the top and see if that works!
Ponsonby`s ever so slow Soho Square construction project has acquired some more murals. Earth moving equipment are back on site despite the rain, though it seems like its at a snail pace. Hopefully Progressive Enterprises now have some plans, its been a year since they bought it off the receivers and about 5 years since the site was excavated.
