An exhibition by contemporary New Zealand artists who treat the canvas like a sculpture. The artists explore texture and shape, treating the surface of the canvas similarly, but each using different processes with differing results.
Alexander Bartleet uses recognisable objects such as mobile phones, cassettes, hinges and fishing twine, filling the canvas in a seething energised mass. He then adds his own variation by over-brushing and then rubbing back. Miranda Parkes creates colourful, three-dimensional canvases that beg the question, is it a sculpture or a painting?
