TSU – 6. (The Sky That Lights Upon Us)

6. (The Sky That Lights Upon Us) represents a mirror-like existence of our hearts. We pray and breathe together. Even if our physical appearance looks different, our minds can gradually overlap. Perhaps, the time we look up at the sky will be extended more. 6. (The Sky That Lights Upon Us) can become our home where we let our hearts rest.


“The Painter and the Emperor” Revisited

In 1978, Ngaire Mules, Kate Hill and Janelle Aston produced a 25 minute videotape, as part of a course run by Philip Dadson, at Elam School of Fine Arts. The aim of the video, which was made using a Sony portapack with a hand-held camera, was to examine women’s attitudes towards combining motherhood with their practice as an artist.

Of the 18 women who were interviewed at the time, the following artists have since agreed to contribute works to this exhibition: Gretchen Albrecht; Philippa Blair; Marion Chasteau; Jill Evans; Christine Hansen; Lesley Kaiser; Belinda Weir; Glenda Randerson; Andrea Robinson and Barbara Tuck. Kate Hill and Ngaire Mules will also display some early and later works. Sculptures by Alison Duff (1914 – 2000) have been kindly loaned by her daughter, Josh Salter.

Bobbie Gray – Insignificant Other

Depot Artspace 28 Clarence Street, Devonport, Auckland

Insignificant Other brings everyday life into art through magnifying borer ‘galleries’ found in the native timber floors of the artist’s home.

Poised between sculpture and painting, these hand-routed, human-scale engravings are traces of the vast, yet complex realities that lie beneath the surface of our own existence. The works read as abstract paintings, yet the mark making delves beneath the surface, revealing physical depth. The lines left are evidence of life lived, in parallel with our own.
