Local artists Kirsten Boswijk & Cate Murphy with a colourful interpretation of the New Zealand flora.
Until 24 February 2018.
Kirsten Boswijk graduated from Nelson Marlborough institute of technology in 2010 with a bachelor in Visual Art and Design. She majored in ceramics and was mentored throughout her degree by Christine Boswijk. It was 2005 when Christine first put clay into Kirsten’s hands and encouraged her to study at NMIT and she has been a steadfast supporter to the development of Kirsten’s practice.
Her practice includes a range of slip-cast and hand carved domestic-ware inspired by flowers, and a series of hand built works inspired by the unique birds of New Zealand.
This exhibition was inspired by the beautiful botanical drawings of New Zealand flora by Audrey Eagle. The concept is to celebrate the diversity of New Zealand’s flora.
Cate Murphy is a Nelson artist who paints in bold and bright acrylic colour on canvas, timber or found objects.
She has exhibited in San Francisco, Dublin and New Zealand.
