PAINTING THE DIGITAL AGE | Cam Edward
A first look at Cam Edward's impressive abstract paintings might suggest his forms are digitally produced. But on closer inspection it is revealed that these works are the result of masterful masking and colour gradient painting techniques.
This blurring between the handmade and the technologically aided is at the centre of the artist's practise, as Edward explores the space between contemporary painting and the digital world. In a time of increasing fleeting moments of digital interaction Edward aims to rejuvenate the act of analogue painting itself.

ART IMITATING LIFE |
Wellington based sculptor Graeme Hitchcock creates whimsical figurative work in vibrant coloured glass. Using the lost wax technique he carves his work first in wax before casting in glass. His ambition is to make his viewer smile, laugh and question.
Hitchcock has become well known for his Men Looking series. Hitchcock developed the idea after seeing a group of people waiting at a bus stop in Auckland, all had averted their gazes from one another as they waited to catch the bus to another day of work. Hitchock finds inspiration and humour in these routine scenes of life.
