Deluge / Upheaval explores process, materiality and mark making. My recent practice has focused on allowing the process or material to dictate the final outcome. Letting go of preconceived ideas about what a work ‘should be’ has encouraged me to slow down and form a relationship with my materials (primarily ink on paper and ceramics) as well as find a sense of freedom within my practice. This exhibition is the result of many hours of intuitive play and an infatuation with line and form.
At Artifactmade we design and build furniture but we approach things a little differently. Driven by the pursuit of ethical design, we build modular products with the purpose of creating healthy and productive workplaces that maximise creative output and improve workflow. This exhibition showcases the journey we took to explore the ethics behind how products are designed and made and the effect that well designed work spaces can have on your health. Come Explore the Unknown as we delve into, the design of everyday things, healthy workspaces, materials and manufacture, design for change.
This exhibition is a collection of landscape photos taken around Wellington. I live in Karori, and have developed a passion for photography. Wellington's surroundings are wild and chaotic but this collection will show the natural lines and patterns in the landscape. The lines and patterns in the photos creates an abstract perspective. The collection will aim to inspire other people to look at the Wellington landscape in an new light.

“Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favours no race and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal and transform. It transcends our normal lives and lets us imagine what is possible”. Richard Kamler

Where it is the purpose of science to find answers, it is a purpose of art to pose questions.
In codaMorphology, the questions that arise are about artistic choices. Just why is an artwork beautiful to us - or not? Are accepted mathematical ideals such as the golden ratio self-fulfilling? Just where does the idea of ‘beauty’ lie?
Dark City is a masterful collaboration between Melissa McDougall’s oil paintings and Kiran X’s multi-media paintings featuring iconic Wellington scenes juxtaposed with cinema vixens, neon abstraction and city lights.
KIRAN-X uses aerosol and reconstituted paints with existing weathered surfaces found in the city. Drawn to dark urbanized icons, abstraction of advertising and tech noir, his characters have become bound together by an otherworldly beat of street fonts and altered facades.
