img_1805 My first solo exhibition, featuring woodblock prints on paper and calico and ceramic sculptures. Once more the themes of the works are animal-human relations, whether exploring the Japanese folk myths of animal shape shifters, Norse myths, endangered and extinct species, or Nietzsche’s three metamorphoses. Most of the works have been completed in the last six months, with the wood fired and raku fired ceramics representing  further exploration of  the potential of ceramic sculpture. Take a virtual tour of some of the works here and, if you are in Napier over the next couple of weeks, do visit the Gallery to see them in person.
