28 November 2019 - 20 February 2020

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

Contemporary artist David Rickard returns home for a solo exhibition in Ashburton. Echoes from the Sound Barrier will bring together new works made during 2018 and 2019, including a number of new pieces made in New Zealand specifically for this exhibition.

Rickard, (1975) was born in Ashburton and attended Ashburton College before studying Architecture at Auckland University and later Fine Arts in Milan and London. Now based in London, UK; his original studies in architecture have had a lasting impact on his art practice, embedding questions of material and spatial perception deep into his work.

Through research and experimentation, his works attempt to understand how we arrived at our current perception of the physical world and how far our perception is from what we call reality.

Rickard’s work has been published in articles and interviews within The New York Times, The Independent, Frame, Kunstbeeld, Drome and Flash Art among others. His exhibition history spans solo undertakings in Milan, London, Basel, Rotterdam and Brussels.

While in Ashburton, Rickard will also be creating a site specific work for the entrance wall of the Art Gallery.
