Memory of place takes flight

ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

about-exhibition

DATES & TIMES

3 March - 31 March 2018

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Fiona Van Oyen’s solo exhibition Memory of Place Takes Flight is an extension on her striking multi-panel work I think this is part of my garden…, which took out the Premier Award for ZAFAA17.

A mountain is a part of the landscape and it is a reference point… rivers, lakes, holes in the ground, fishing grounds, trees, burial places and islands… they all form a cultural grid over the land which provides meaning order and stability to human existence. Without the fixed grid of named features we would be total strangers on the land – lost souls with nowhere to attach ourselves. (Sir Sydney Moko Mead)

With an interest in the psychological and perceptual reading of landscape, Van Oyen creates meditative and arresting works which honour the traditions of printmaking while progressing the practice of contemporary drawing.

This exhibition is supported by Zonta Club of  Ashburton in partnership with the Ashburton Art Gallery.
