Nautilus Creative Space is the home to an exciting and diverse collective of over 20 artists and musicians on Wellington’s South Coast. From jewellers, sculptors, and painters, to carvers, leather specialists and furniture makers, artists of all types make up this inspired haven by the sea. From pieces that will delight and inspire you to those that intrigue – Nexus Please! – offers a rare chance to sample, savour and connect with a unique creative showcase from Nautilus artists.
The show features the contemporary 3D structures of artist Aaron Frater, the exquisite jewellery of Sue Keates, and the wondrous New Zealand pounamu creations of Nick Spicer Balme and Madelyne Gourdin, who are recently back from winning awards for their carving in China. Also on display will be Mary Laine’s Burtonesque marionettes, the striking flora and fauna inspired drawings of Fleur Midalia, bold emotive pieces from Jasmine Rangi Jones, Kate Muir’s quirky characterisations and surreal worlds along with eclectic works from many others.
