It’s 3 weeks out from the launch of ‘Retold – Paintings from the Grimm Project’ and it’s been all action stations in the studio as I’ve been busy finishing off the body of work for this exhibition. Retold will be on show at Toi Poneke Gallery, 61 Abel Smith Street, Wellington, NZ from the 7th – 29th of August.
I have been fortunate enough to receive a grant in support of this exhibition from The Emerging Artists Trust which I am immensely grateful for. A big shout out goes out to them – thanks!
An exciting addition to the exhibition is a performance by Kenneth Männchen in response to the painting ‘The Golden Bird’. Kenneth will resume the role of the fox from this story after having modeled for the paintings. This performance will happen at 12pm on Saturday the 8th August at Toi Poneke and forms part of their 10th birthday celebrations.
