WHAT'S BEHIND THE BLACK DOORS THIS MONTH?
RAE WEST | X SERIES
Rae West continues to explore her X series this summer.
To create these statement pieces, West combines 24ct gilded gold leaf with free poured resin. The process is a fine balance between controlling the outcome and allowing the unique qualities of the liquid resin to flow into place by chance.
The X gesture is a recurring motif for the artist and has a number of interpretations and cultural connections. The X is a universal form, it implies transcendence, transformation, love and also a kiss. The subject of the ‘kiss’ or love has been interpreted by artists for centuries in a plethora of ways. For Rae West distilling this notion to its absolute essence, an X on an O, is a pure expression of a large idea.

NEW WORK RELEASE | STEADFAST
We are thrilled to release an impressive new hanging sculptural piece by Ben Young titled Steadfast.
Harmonising concrete, steel, bronze, LED and laminated float glass, Young implies a dramatic waterscape with a lighthouse grounded on the shoreline. The compelling slice of topography dissects the circular porthole-like frame revealing a dramatic scene at the edge of a bay where it opens to the ocean.
Measuring 80cm in diameter and suspended in space this is a significant piece of New Zealand sculpture. With built in LED the artwork is illuminated and alive with light.

NEW WORK RELEASE
CAST GLASS BY DI TOCKER
Di Tocker is an acclaimed glass artist who specialises in unique and appealing figurative cast glass exhibition sculptures.
This December we are pleased to present a large scale cast glass piece titled ‘Deep 2’.
Through cast glass Di Tocker captures the colours and movement of glacial ice forms. The increased dimensions of this piece offer a compelling sense of depth, volume and movement reminiscent of the recrystallisation of snow and cryoconite. While solid in form, when illuminated, this evocative glass piece seemingly takes on a liquid state.
