Now Representing Hugo Koha Lindsay

Gow Langsford Gallery welcomes Hugo Koha Lindsay into its stable of artists. Lindsay’s abstract surfaces take reference from their surroundings and from the process of painting. Creases are captured in the process of the canvas being stretched, rubbings are made and marks mirrored from his studio walls and floor. Lindsay’s work often reflects the structure of the ubiquitous digital screen, where space is constructed in layers that acknowledge tabs or windows. His practice considers the greater complexities of today’s relationship between the digital and the physical, which continues to shift with the progression of digital culture.

Lindsay has been the recipient of numerous recent awards including the Molly Morpeth Canaday Painting and Drawing Award, 2016; the Kaipara Wallace Arts Trust Award, 2015; the Parkin Drawing Prize Merit Award, 2015; the Walker and Hall, Zinni Douglas Merit Award, 2014; and the Francis Erwin Hunt Scholarship, 2011.

Frizzell to help fundraise for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery

Frizzell to help fundraise for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery
The limited edition print in progress

Dick Frizzell will lend his artistic hand to create a limited edition silkscreen print to help fundraise money for the Hundertwasser Arts Centre & Wairau Maori Art Gallery in Whangarei. The Hundertwasser Foundation in Vienna has given Frizzell the copyright permission to produce the print, with the working title of Homage a Hundertwasser’. 

Friedensreich Hundertwasser was an Austrian artist and architect, who has ties to New Zealand after he purchased land in the Bay of Islands in the 1970s, where he lived until his death in 2000. He designed and built the Bottle House, as well as the 'Hundertwasser Toilets' in Kawakawa which is a hot spot for tourists, and one of the most photographed toilet blocks in New Zealand. In 1993, the Mayor of Whangarei invited him to design an art centre for the city and now 20 years on, this design will hopefully be implemented with the help of donations and backing from local council and national museums and galleries.

The Art Centre will have a gallery space to exhibit over 50 original works by Hundertwasser on loan from Vienna and will also include the Wairau Maori Art Gallery, to showcase and celebrate contemporary Maori art. They hope to raise upwards of $13 million and commence building in 2017.

For more information on this project and ways in which you can donate or volunteer, visit their website here.

Graham Fletcher features in 'Time of Others' travelling exhibition

After exhibitions in Tokyo, Osaka and Singapore, the major curatorial collaboration 'Time of Others' opens tomorrow at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane.

Featuring gallery artist Graham Fletcher, this evolving, travelling exhibition is an attempt to create a platform for reflecting on social and cultural relations in the Asia-Pacific today.  Curated by Che Kyongfa, Hashimoto Azusa, Michelle Ho and Reuben Keehan, 'Time of others' brings together new works by artists from the Asia-Pacific as well as holdings drawn from the collections of the participating museums. It aims to reveal multiple perspectives, in which differences meet without melting into an artificial unity, but are instead negotiated and used as tools for reflection.

The exhibition runs from the 11th of June – 18th of September 2016.

Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee to exhibit in Glassfever

Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee to exhibit in Glassfever

Tony Cragg and Hye Rim Lee are to feature alongside an impressive collection of artists in the exhibition Glassfever: Contemporary Art in Glass, opening across four locations in the Netherlands on the 30th of April, running until the 25th of September, 2016.

"Glass is a versatile and complex material. It can reflect light and allow it to pass through simultaneously, it can be clear and opaque, fluid and solid. For many years, glass was only use in applied art. In glassware, jewellery and decorative objects. In autonomous modern art, glass was never considered to be a fully-fledged material like bronze, marble or steel. Not until the 1960s was glass used as a material in modern art without preconception or artistic reserve. Adriano Berengo was a pioneer in this development. For over twenty-five years, Studio Beregno has been modernizing the tradition of Murano glass art by working with renowned names and up-and-coming talent in international contemporary visual arts. The results of Berengo's passionate pioneering work are now on display as part of the GlassFever exhibition at four locations in Dordrecht."

Richard Lewer wins Albany Art Prize

Richard Lewer wins Albany Art Prize
Untitled from the Mostly Sunny Series

Congratulations to Richard Lewer on winning the 2015 Albany Art Prize!

This prestigious award is in its 8th year, offering $25,000 and a 4 week studio residency to artists living and working in Australia.

Richard Lewer on the chosen work:

Last year the Western Australian government implemented a shark culling program off the swimming beaches of Perth and the South West coastline following the deaths of 7 people. Being a surfer, I was spooked by the fatal attacks but like many locals, was also concerned about the efficacy of the government’s fear-driven policy and the brutality of the baited drum lines used to capture the sharks.

My work explores extremes and conflict; the shark culling program attracted local, national and international attention, and public demonstrations were held around the country; as a social realist I joined the 6000-strong protest at Cottesloe Beach to document the fervent debate in my local community.

This work will be exhibited alongside the finalists in Albany, 4 September - 11 October.

Simon Ingram at Water Tower Festival in Sofia

Simon Ingram at Water Tower Festival in Sofia
Simon Ingram, 2015

Simon Ingram is currently exhibiting in Sofia’s largest international art festival ‘The Water Tower Art Festival’. The festival is an artist run initiative that has been operating every year in June since 2006.

“The festival now has developed as a platform of exchange of national and international artists working in all disciplines within contemporary visual art. It gives the opportunity to share ideas and to question the socio-political situation with its socially engaged works made especially for the venues and showcase of contemporary artworks with the notion of overcoming the paradigm of our age, dominated by economic structures that obstruct our very prime right to exist.

Part of the festival this year will take place in the city of Pernik, (very close to Sofia), which in the 1980’s boasted more than 80 working factories with heavy industry – now, nearly all shut down, abandoned and in ruins, especially after the earthquake 3 years ago. In the face of this visible product of post-communist catastrophe, the notion of being politically correct is no longer satisfactory and we take a stand with the unquestionable power of art.  The hunches we follow this year are mere ideas to be where needed, as artists and fully aware of the function art has in society nowadays.

We are calling for revival, trying to bring back hope and sense in hopeless places and senseless time.”

For her first exhibition in Russia, German-born artist Katharina Grosse has created one of the largest site-specific installations ever seen in Moscow. Challenging perceptions of what painting is, the installation yes no why later metamorphoses the 800 square-meter exhibition hall into a spectacular, immersive environment. As the final project for Garage Pavilion, the work has been created specifically for the space and its context, using materials that make the connection between Gorky Park and the architecture of the temporary building, which was designed by Shigeru Ban. The result is a haunting, unearthly, “living picture” that visitors can move through, composed of soil and trees sculpted into surprising formations and contaminated by vivid, raw color.
