The Dinner Party
Ceramics by Aimée McLeod
Fast food, take away coffees out of paper cups and plastic containers, eating on the run or in front of TV, hurry, stress…part of the daily routine for many these days. Consider sitting down with friends at a table with plates and dishes that are worthy of the food and enhance the pleasure of eating . Aimée’s ceramic tableware is unrepentantly non- recyclable and non-disposable.

Urban Trees
Photographs by Roland Idaczyk
Urban Trees is a story of survival. These trees have apparently assimilated to their surroundings. They even adapted similar colours. Although these trees look deprived, they are full of life. The images for this series were mostly taken during winter. While this reduces the appearance of the trees to their essential structure, in all their nakedness they also convey a very special beauty. Unfortunately, several of the Wellingtonian trees in this series have had their lives taken.

Electron Micrographs
John Patterson
The Electron micrographs were taken using the 30 year old JEOL 733 microprobe at Victoria University. John looked after this analytical microscope for 11 years. Some of these images were recently interpreted in oils by Linda Ćihařová, an artist in Prague.

STRING ART | DARYL MURPHY

Opening hours:
10.00am - 4.00pm, Monday - Saturday
10.00am - 2.00pm, Sunday

Welcome to the fascinating world of string art, the creative craft working with wood, nails and string. My exhibition shows a range of techniques used including abstract, representational designs, 2 and 3 dimensional, layered, paired and a few string sculptures.

A special section devoted to the "spider-man series" featuring 10 pieces showing various body positions strung in alternative styles.

Personal statement

For me thread design started back in the mid 70's with my brother bringing homework home of geometric patterns (symmography) from college. theses were later handed onto me to do, I soon revised that this was a great way to make a piece of art. Slowly over the years I continued to gather and collate resources leading into some original designs of my own. My passion for working with nails and string motivates me to create. I like the idea of the artwork being with all who appreciate beautiful pictures which can enhance the home, office or workplace.
