The eye altering alters all

Obscure Galleries inaugural opening saw a good turn out from the local community as well as artists and buyers from far a field; and was a great opportunity to check out the new space and venue for arts in the Motueka/Tasman region.

The current show ‘The eye altering alters all’ brings together a fusion of painting, photography, jewellery, mixed media and the curious monsters of fabric artist Heather Owen.

Dominating the main walls are three large works by mixed media artist John Currin. The power of the works is instantly readable even as you approach the gallery from the outside. Rich intense colour emanates from the surfaces of the two main canvases. Their surfaces seem sullied by the elements, the images emerging through the textures of time. “My works are fashioned with the debris of our neglect” remarks Currin, “I take things that we consider unworthy or ugly, such as rust, mould or shattered glass, and fashion works of beauty from them”.

Obscure Gallery is proud to present a national small works show opening on Friday 11th December. Artists from Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin will be exhibiting alongside local contemporary artists.

The concept of the show is literally 'off the wall.' This refers not only to the content of the works but also that buyers can purchase pieces and take them home immediately. The exhibition will be a fast revolving show, all sold works being replaced by new pieces keeping the space fresh and moving.

The 100 x 100 refers to artwork dimensions and the price ($100). Obscure Gallery sees this as a chance to procure high profile artists work for your walls, collections and investments at an affordable price.

The 'Off the wall' show will run for 6 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period.

Opening: Friday 11th December - 17th Janurary
Where: Obscure Gallery 42b High St, Mot... [ Read all ]
