New works from Dunedin artist Anya Sinclair feature in The Garden of Forking Paths, which opens on 15 November, and runs through the summer months at the Gallery. The exhibition features 18 of the artist's works.
The exhibition title is derived from a 1941 short story by Argentinian writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges.
Anya Sinclair's works evoke both her upbringing in the rambling bush of Auckland's Waiktakere Ranges, but also bring in the sensory experiences of her travels to Brazil.
In the work Sinclair's favoured lush and deep greens shine, in particular where nature has been somewhat tamed by civilisation then has reclaimed its territory.
Anya Sinclair studied at the Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland from 2000 to 2002, before relocating to Dunedin to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic.
She has exhibited regularly in both group and solo exhibitions since 2008.
The Gallery is thrilled to be supporting the New Zealand Garden & Art Festival 2014.
