KERI MOLLOY & AARON HOSKINS
ENDS TODAY !
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.

PATIENT , a unique and powerful photographic exhibition which was recently shown at the Turner Centre Kerikeri for the launch of Dr Chris Reid’s book of the same title, has now been dismantled.
Kaan Zamaan will be displaying eight of the largest images from 5th — 20th November. If you missed seeing these wonderful photographs, come and see them in an intimate white space, where you can be up close and at eye level with them, immersed and surrounded by them !
All the framed photographs , which were part of this series, will be display in Russell.
Dr Chris Reid is a GP in Kerikeri and an elected member of the Northland DHB. Originally from the UK, Chris trained at the University of Newcastle Medical School before spending 10 years in the Royal Marines. During this time, he served with the Special Boat Service, the special forces unite of the Royal Navy. He emigrated to New Zealand in 2004 and began to develop his interest in portrait photography, with one of his photos winning the People’s Choice Northland BDO Art Award in 2013. He lives near Russell in the Bay of Islands, with his wife, son and two border terriers.
