Living As Form

Proud to be associated with "Living As Form" – an exhibition of art from Oceania featuring Visesio Siasau, Serene Hai Thang Whakatau Tay and George Nuku now on show at ORA Gallery New York.

"Ora Gallery New York has been transformed by a potent collaboration of three artists of Oceania, all with strong bloodlines to Aotearoa New Zealand. Visesio Siasau, Serene Hai Thang Whakatau Tay and George Nuku are deeply committed to their practice as a process of shared creation and the diffusion of ideas through form. Their work embodies a meaningful exploration of life, spirit, earth and the whakapapa (genealogy) that connects us and all things."

 

Lynchland Members Mix #1

Available to stream now - the David Lynch - Lynchland Members Mix #1 featuring Diamond Field and the Black Lodge Girls (Lucy Black, Jazzi Marzcat and Havana Chase) with Chris Ward on sax, with a cover design by myself, featuring an original photograph I've always though was vey 'Lyncherian'.

The song's lyrics are by Havana Chase and are inspired by "A Real Indication” by Angelo Badalamenti And David Lynch From The "Fire Walk With Me" Soundtrack.

As Lynchland describes the compilation:

"A few weeks ago, we asked our members to share their musical creations with us (via www.fb.com/Lynchland). We didn't anticipate receiving such a positive response: about one hundred songs were submitted, and we had a very difficult time choosing only fifteen to appear in this first mix....

Thanks to John Fryer from This Mortal Coil, who submitted a fair amount of fantastic tracks for us to chose from; to Johan Reinholdz, from the great metal band Andromeda (www.facebook.com/AndromedaBand/); and to Kevin Wolzt, who helped with the sound design.

A special thanks to Andrew B. White, who created the cover art and appears in the mix as Diamond Field, a great synthwave project that we highly recommend."

 

Greenpoint Gallery Show

Four of my photographic works were part of the first Summer Salon show at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn. The one-day show featured a number of artists over two levels with live music. It was a great night with some fantastic art.

Toi Wāhine Collective & Perfomances - Ora Gallery

This is something I'm very excited to be part of. On April 11th and 12th at ORA Gallery I will be accompanying Grammy winner Jerome Kavanagh along with Pitch Black's Paddy Free playing some improvised music as part of the Toi Wāhine Collective. Also performing on the April 12th is the Atamira Dance Company.
Read below for the full run-down. If you are in NYC this will be a very special couple of days bringing Aotearoa (New Zealand) to the city.

"For two days on 11-12 April 2016, the Toi Wāhine Collective will transform Ora Gallery New York with a pop-up exhibit and performance events.

Toi Wāhine is a collective of Māori women artists from Aotearoa New Zealand. Their work includes original paperworks, open and limited edition prints, contemporary taonga (design objects), jewelry and a film installation, all made in Aotearoa, on show and available to buy for the first time in New York.

Ta Moko (tattoo) and visual artist Taryn Beri is in New York to represent the collective and as kaitiaki (steward) of a capsule collection of work, representing the incredibly vibrant world of contemporary Māori women’s art in Aotearoa.

Special guest friends of the Toi Wāhine Collective will also be performing in the gallery space on both evenings, starting at 7pm. Amongst others, Grammy award winning Jerome Kavanagh will perform, playing Māori taonga puoro (musical instruments). Jerome, like Toi Wāhine, is part of a broad movement bringing Māori music, art and culture to the world.

The Toi Wāhine pop-up and performances will share the space with the current exhibition at Ora Gallery New York, Anthropocene Vision sparking a dialogue between the whakaaro (concepts) of these photographic visions by Aotearoa New Zealand-born artists and the Toi Wāhine collection."

I will sometimes be at the gallery during the show so please come and say hello.

“Anthropocene is the contentious term for the age we live in. Literally anthropo “man” cene “new”, it refers to the first era in which humans have had a permanent impact on Earth. Our relationship with the natural world is timeless and essential, but the accelerating rate of climate change has brought the discussion about our responsibility for nurturing the environment into stark relief. In these works, we see a spectrum of desire to capture, influence, understand, and form a spiritual connection with the world we inhabit. What appears to be untouched is not, and what is visibly manipulated reveals a deep fascination with how we can alter nature and manufacture environments."
