Exhibition Opening – Indecipherable Celebration

10 December, 2022 at 5.30pm

Join us for the opening of Indecipherable Celebration on Saturday 10 December at 5.30pm.

Indecipherable Celebration presents recent work by Ōtautahi Christchurch based painter Gareth Brighton. Since graduating from Ilam School of Fine Arts with his Masters in 2016, Brighton has worked with a variety of media including painting, printmaking and sculpture. Despite this, he retains a consistent and striking style which encourages viewers to explore the diverse materials used throughout his practice.

Using recycled and scavenged items, Brighton’s painting and sculpture resurrect the cast-off, unwanted, and surplus materials of contemporary society, reviving them to create objects that are figurative yet other-worldly.

All welcome at this free event, light refreshments will be served. Find more information here.
