'INHALE : EXHALE' offers soulful and beautiful visual imagery that acts as a counter to what has become a very fast-paced, digital-focused world.
Tangible subjects, and tangible working processes, all contribute to a grounding of the work in reality. These artists challenge the viewer to really look and absorb not only the subject being presented, but each and every stroke of the artist: pencil-stroke, brush stroke, or polish of the jeweller’s cloth... reach out and hold your attention.
The artists exhibiting in INHALE : EXHALE supplement or support their art practice by contracting for the film industry. This can be a highly demanding occupation, it is both energetically and creatively draining. This exhibition at Thistle Hall is an opportunity to nourish and celebrate their own artistic talents and interests, and to show their work to a wider audience.
We think the Wellington public will be interested to see the personal work of some of our reclusive film technicians, and believe that many people will relate and respond to the themes explored in the work.
