'Kupenga Sisters' by Jasmine Clark (Arrowtown). Made from woven copper wire, supplejack* and ratan. Viewed during my birthday visit to the 2019 Arts Gold Finalists Exhibition at Central Stories Museum and Art Gallery, Alexandra, Central Otago, New Zealand.

Hullabaloo: The Nevis

A spectacular hidden valley close to Bannockburn, yet isolated because of its difficult access, the Nevis Valley is the subject of this year's winter show. Wind your way up the Carrick Range to Duffers Saddle and imagine being in a wagon drawn by Clydesdale horses or bullocks, struggling up the mountain pass, 1000metres in 10... Continue Reading →

Hullabaloo Two

These prisms continuously rotate 120 degrees, revealing each iridescent colour as it turns. As the theatre lighting hits these prisms, a kaleidoscope of colour is created - colour that reflects and... Continue Reading →

Colour Magic

Immersed in joyful, happy colour, our treat after a day of car travel. We didn't have much time but both of us felt happy and relaxed in this fun colourspace. I'll be posting more about this soon(ish). Taken 23 July 2019. Dunedin, New Zealand

Remote Control

At the wave of his hand, Nigel controls the mountain scene and navigates the alpine panorama. For us this was a 'sideshow' to the exhibition we'd arrived to see at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery on 23 July 2019 - but fun! I had a go too 🙂 Dunedin, Otago, New Zealand
