Robyn Gibson: Things (like a walk in the park)

December 6, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - December 18, 2014 @ 3:00 pm

Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 6 December 2 – 3.30pm

Painter and sculptor, Robyn Gibson is presently gallery curator for Depot Artspace in Devonport, Auckland.

Gibson’s recent works for her 2014 exhibition titled Things (like a walk in the park) are a play on the 1970s song by Bobby Darin in which he re-lives memories of a past relationship. Gibson’s works are an eclectic mix of painting, assemblage and sculpture that reference happy memories and nostalgic feelings and offer a snapshot of life speckled with her disarming sense of humour.

Gibson’s painting and sculpture are strongly influenced by the later period of Canadian painter Phillip Guston and the psychological language found in works by French sculptor Louise Bourgeois. The subject matter comprises impressions of our contemporary culture such as music and the feminine.
