A Line Between Two Points
Monique Lacey & Rebecca Wallis
The Vivian is delighted to showcase the work of two of our most recent represented artists, Monique Lacey and Rebecca Wallis in a single major show.
The title comes from the poet Charles Olson, who remarked that 'A poem is a line between any two points in creation.' While each artist has their very own unique practice, there are common philosophical threads between them. This 'line', and the minimal, lyrical nature of both artists' work, promises to make for one of the highlights in this year's show calendar.
We are delighted to welcome Mark Braunias back to The Vivian with this special small show of three significant works.
Mark has been a long-time supporter of The Vivian, and these works typify why we love his work so much. His approach to painting is one that is joyful, supremely crafted, witty, and sometimes even dark.
Known and almost universally respected as a ‘painter’s painter’, Mark’s prodigious artistic output is matched only by his ceaseless questioning and relentless exploring of form, colour, texture, shape and line.
We are delighted to launch Fiona Pardington's outstanding new series, Midnight at the Crossroads in collaboration with Starkwhite, with a unique event featuring special guests Mr & Mrs Haines.
Recognised as one of New Zealand's leading artists, and with over 30-years of professional practice, Fiona believes photography is the ultimate animistic portal; a crossroad where mundane and etheric meet in light and shadow.
Renowned musicians, Nathan and Jaimie Haines will dig deep into their extensive collection of vinyl rarities to present a DJ set of musical exotica in response to these extraordinary works.
Powerful, raw, and sublime ‘Vignette’ explores the relationships between technology and the human body; a theme Vicki has been exploring for the past year in her practise.
These three individual pieces have been painstakingly crafted to highlight the strength, and fragility, of her signature borosilicate glass.
