NZ Life & Leisure - - That’s The Spirit -

10 Novem­ber to 24 Feb­ru­ary, Tau­ranga Art Gallery Toi Tau­ranga Tau­ranga artist Emma Prill trans­forms the atrium at Tau­ranga Art Gallery with a gi­ant in­stal­la­tion of lay­ered imag­i­nary flow­ers across three largescale walls. The strik­ing com­po­si­tion in­cludes more than 1000 flower heads made from lay­ered laser- cut card­board, three- di­men­sional hand­cut can­vas and di­verse paint tex­tures. The artist has col­lab­o­rated with com­mu­nity groups and school­child­ren to cre­ate the blooms, some of which ref­er­ence Aotearoa’s na­tive flora, the flower mar­kets of In­dia and the trop­i­cal gar­dens and reefs of Fiji. art­
