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

‘I Am Agony, I Am Ecstasy’

Two sides of a male face, sad & happy.

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

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 Cat Who Got the Cream

MANZ medal

This work exhibited at the Sculpture in the Gardens 2019-20, Auckland Botanic Gardens Indoor exhibition.

This diptych medal embroidered with gold thread. Experimenting. This piece brought me back to childhood pleasures, sewing with my wonderful grandmother, Moya. She not only taught me to sew, knit and make dolls, she also bred cats, so I think this one is for her!
