KIM LOGUE & SCOTT MCFARLANE | 4 Sept — 11 Oct
Glass & Paintings
Kim was born in Auckland, and finished her Bachelor of Applied Arts in 2012. She has exhibited widely nationally & internationally , and her works are in private collections here ( Sir James Wallace Trust ) & worldwide.
Kim Logue’s glass work reflects her concerns for the local environment her home Northland, New Zealand, with her most recent works focusing on the loss of New Zealand’s indigenous forests.
The tools she uses, in particular the saw, is an icon to encourage discussion about the deforestation of NZ Kauri forests and to raise questions about the price of ” progress”. The saw is a metaphor for both destruction and construction, while the fragility of glass references the balance between the two.
As well as using lead crystal casting billets, she uses locally sourced obsidian, the black volcanic glass first traded and used for tools 13,000 years ago. This references the history of trade and tool making, where the use of recycled materials ( handles ) evokes a more immediate and personal history.
The tool trade has been so essential to man’s development and is so intimately interwoven into the construction/destruction of our civilisation today.
McFarlane was born in Wellington in 1966 and lives in Northland. He completed a Diploma of Fine Arts ( Honours ) at Otago School of Art in 1993. He has exhibited regularly in New Zealand in private and public galleries and has works in numerous private and public collections.
Scott McFarlane’s new works — a series of small landscape oil paintings based between Lake Omapere and Whangaroa harbour — they are stunning and it is so good to see McFarlane painting ( Northland ) landscapes again.

Our fundraiser last year was “WE CARE” . Some artwork from this exhibition is still in stock, so we continue to raise money for the desparate children of Gaza, as the works sell.
The total amount raised so far is just over $12 780 ! $12 480 has been passed on to Kia Ora Gaza, to help with medical supplies for Gaza. THANK YOU everyone for your generosity, it was an AMAZING effort, let’s hope we bring just a little relief to some of these desparate children’s lives. Some $300 went to Save The Children.
A view of the opening night, thank you Sophi for the video.
