KERI MOLLOY & AARON HOSKINS
A new Exhibition opened Friday 10th October. This exhibition has had a wonderful responce, with Keri selling practically all her paintings in the first few days, and Aaron is also off to a great start .
New Paintings by Keri Molloy & carving/sculpture by Aaron Hoskins will be on show until 31st October. We look forward to seeing you during the course of this lovely refreshing new exhibition .
For Keri Molloy the Exhibition is about coming home…to an inner place where one feels comfortable, to a place of associations, memories, hopes and experiences. It’s about places that are harbours, about relationships that have been forged and nurtured, it’s about a place where the door is open. It’s about dwellings of all kinds. The paintings have evolved over a few years of weighing up priorities and treasuring all that there is.
Aaron Hoskins will also be showing works in this exhibition , sculpture and work using recycled wood.
Aaron lives in Whangarei , his Iwi is Ngapuhi and his Hapu is Ngatihau.
His main artistic medium is wood, usually natives like Kauri and Totara, which have been used by Maori for hundreds of years and are still used in contemporary Maori sculpture today.
The pieces of found or recycled wood represent old forests long since gone. Aaron salvages old off cuts to honour them as Taonga [Treasures].
Sometimes Aaron works with individual pieces, sometimes with an assemblage from several component parts. In these combined works he adds paint and found metals. His process stems from an idea combining with chance elements to organically crate a finished work.
Aaron endeavours to create art that is representative of his dual ancestry, as he wants to continue exploring both his cultural hertages through his journey as an artist in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Do come and meet the artists and enjoy the opening Friday 10th October, from 4 — 6pm.
