Artist Talk with Elizabeth Thomson
Saturday, June 20, 2015 - 1:00pm

Join us on Saturday, June 20, at 1.00pm for a talk by Wellington sculptor Elizabeth Thomson, whose exhibition Invitation to Openness - Substantive and Transitive States opens in the Gallery's Atrium this weekend. 

 
The exhibition, developed and toured by The Dowse Art Museum with the support of Creative New Zealand, is an ambitious installation of hundreds of flocked bronze white moths.
 
Thomson’s elegantly refined works redefine the way we view and consider the inherent beauty of the world around us. All aspects of her practice are meticulous and the technical virtuosity she employs to create the effects of optical illusion are simply breathtaking.
 
Using an intense observation of nature as her starting point, she convincingly recreates botanical, entomological or molecular forms that she then incorporates into surprisingly abstract geometric compositions.
 
Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to meet this wonderful Welington-based artist.
 
No bookings required, entry by koha.
