'Erryday WizZards' is a modern day curiosity shop, hosting variety of potions & poisons for everyday mind madness.
Melting Western materialism & Eastern Mysticism, Erryday WizZards digs deep into an exploration of self, pulling the cures from within and presenting them in the external world in the form of beautifully hand-painted physical objects.
Drawing on his long background in graphic design branding consumer products. Here La Meche uses the same set of skills to sell ideas of self-empowerment and self-healing often proclaiming that "YOU are the answer". He puts a compelling dynamic on some age-old issues using a unique, appetising pastel colour pallette.
His work has been described as "Like having lollies for your eyes!".
This is his first solo-show in New Zealand after his sell out solo show in the UK back in 2019.
The opening event is supported with small batch beers from Double Vision Brewery & food from Firebird Cafe
There will be acoustic performances within the exhibition space on Thursday, Friday & Saturday 6pm
Emily Benefield makes collages from vintage magazines and children’s books of the 1930s to 1960s. She entertains herself tremendously by juxtaposing unlikely objects to create fanciful scenes. Her sense of humour comes through strongly in her work.
“I really like the style of the vintage illustrations, as well as the saturation of colour in the printing. There are also some really funny headlines in the magazines.”
Emily had been making cards for more than 20 years and started to make larger works in the last 12 months.
“The gender roles in those decades were very prescribed and adults are usually formally dressed so it is a lot of fun to be irreverent with those images, like juxtaposing a well-heeled lady or gent with wild animals or turning the sexist expectations on their heads.”
As part of this exhibition, on Saturday 16 Oct 2pm there will be a 30-45 minute talk/presentation on Colour Psychology - How Colour can Influence Behaviour. Come along to learn more about colour and how it can influence behaviour through our art.
How do we start creating? Where do we begin?
This body of work is the culmination of two artists exploring and observing their creative process. It’s the result of conversation, curiosity and reflection, finding flow or hitting walls and starting starting over.
Ria Apostolidis and Guinevere Cherrill are textiles artist and costumiers with a range of experiences, skills and design aesthetics. Their differences are enhanced by their deep appreciation of the creative process, and their curiosity in the potential that craftsmanship and design can reach.
Improv-art Workshop - Wednesday 20th October, 6 - 7pm

All materials provided, but maybe bring a pillow or mat to sit on as chairs/tables maybe be limited for those who require them. Workshop spaces are limited to 15, please email; Ria Apostolidis firstname.lastname@example.org to book your spot.

The show will feature original paintings, drawings and sculpture from leading local artists.
