Our Nature‘ – Medal Artists New Zealand, exhibition held at Artis Gallery, Parnell, Auckland March 2023.

‘I Am Bound’

Female figure bound in her own hair.

These works grapple with concepts around human nature.

This work looks at the way we are bound by our personal histories, beliefs, thoughts and judgements.

‘I Am Agony, I Am Ecstasy’

Two sides of a male face, sad & happy.

These works grapple with concepts around human nature.

It is in our nature to experience emotion. The human emotional experience is broad and complex and encompasses a vast range of feelings from the most negative, disconnected of feelings to the most positive, and all manner of complexity in between. My medal shows the face of a man, the left side of which is expressing great agony, and the right side expresses great Joy! When the face is seen as a whole it speaks to some emotion in between. At any given point in our lives we are in a state of emotion, anywhere from Agony to Ecstasy!

The medal work ‘I Am Agony, I Am Ecstasy’ will be exhibited in the FIDEM International Congress, Florence, Italy in October 2023.
