Art cel­e­brates life’s jour­ney

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Seven artists will be tak­ing Auck­lan­ders on an un­usual jour­ney on Karanga­hape Rd to launch Iron­bank’s new artis­tic space.

In­spired by Vir­ginia Woolf’s fa­mous line ‘‘For we think through our moth­ers, if we are women’’, Lin­eage is show­cas­ing a col­lec­tion of mul­ti­dis­ci­pline art­works rep­re­sent­ing seven dif­fer­ent jour­neys at The Sa­lon un­til De­cem­ber 19.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is the first to be held at the shared space and presents the works of Jil­lian Fried­lan­der, Sue Dick­son, Dorota Broda, Su­san Wells, Alvie McKree, Denise Murphy and Jill Varani.

First-time ex­hibitor Ms Fried­lan­der says The Sa­lon is a haven for non- es­tab­lished and es­tab­lished artists to ex­change cre­ative ideas and in­spi­ra­tion.

Ms Fried­lan­der’s col­lec­tion of raw black and white pho­to­graphs and bold colour­ful paint­ings cel­e­brates au­tumn in Ar­row­town and the ‘‘pop­corn car­ni­val’’ of sum­mer.

‘‘It’s all about the lay­ers of life,’’ she says.

‘‘I want to show peo­ple as they are. Wrin­kles, freck­les – they’re all char­ac­ter­is­tics of life. Whether it’s good, bad or in be­tween, the won­ders of age are what give you wis­dom.’’

Lin­eage is show­ing at Iron­bank, Unit 8, 150 Karanga­hape Rd, from 11am to 5pm, Mon­day to Fri­day, and 11am to 3pm, Satur­day and Sun­day.
