REVOLUTION
Wayne Churcher
2nd - 12th May

11am to 6pm weekdays
11am to 3pm weekends

Confronting historical conventions of printmaking, painting, and drawing, REVOLUTION responds to the rupture within art in the 50's and 60's by the likes of Jackson Pollock, Agnes Martin, and Robert Ryman. Each artwork refers back to the process of its making while indexing notions of perception, value, and choice. Churcher has created his own visual language with works that are born from computer code, embedding them in the spirit of our era.

OPENING NIGHT: Wednesday 1st May from 6pm

CURRENT

ORIGINAL MYTH
David Le Fleming 22 February – 24 March 2019

Each painting depicts a new ‘god’, a contemporary god fashioned for a new world with a fast-changing political, environmental and social landscape. They’re depicted as conscious entities, mythological animals and creatures that hold sway over certain dominions or concepts. In the same way that an artist might try to reverse engineer a naive perspective, Le Fleming is doing the same with religion. Starting with the political, environmental and social anomalies of a given position and working backwards to decipher the context and relevance, and from there engineering a ‘eureka moment’ or point of meaningful comprehension.

The surface is of especial interest to Le Fleming, using found objects such as old metal tin cans, pieces of furniture, tractor parts and accordion cases, some with typography and defects that are appropriated into the work. The past purposes of these surfaces illuminate one of his central themes: verifying the passage of time.

VENUE HIRE

In the heart of the Cuba/ Eva St Quarter, this popular venue is available for evening hire - book launches, poetry readings and private functions. To book your event please contact dylan@potockipaterson.co.nz

We here at Potocki Paterson promote the acquisition of art. If you like it, you should buy it - even if it is for someone else. If you have a collection, you should add to it. If you've never bought a piece of art, you should start. Collecting is one of the joys in life. MY ART makes it easier to own original art work by providing interest free loans via selected galleries. It's the new way to buy ART.
