Gary Peters, Reading Materials & Occasional Monochromes, 4-26 April 2014
Reading Materials & Occasional Monochromes
4-26 April 2014
UK-born, Wellington based artist Gary Peters will open his first solo exhibition with Gisborne gallery, PAULNACHE on Friday 4 April at 6:00PM. Peters work features in the touring exhibition 'Lying in Space', last shown at The Pah Homestead in Auckland, NZ. The artist will be in attendance for the opening.
Gary Peters 'Reading Materials’ presents a series of monochromes derived from artist’s books and catalogues he’s read. These “painting objects” are made from wood, linen, gesso and paint with their dimensions being the same size as the books. They are “An excuse (as if one is really needed) to make some wonderfully dumb and interesting work”!
Graduating with a first class Masters from Massey University in 2012 his career is in the ascendant. Straight out of school a group show at Enjoy Gallery was followed with a solo show at Toi Poneke before heading to Sydney for a six month studio residency at the prestigious Sydney Non-Objective Contemporary Art Projects (SNO) gallery. 2013 saw him exhibit at SNO, complete residencies in Massey’s Engine Room and at 30 Upstairs in Wellington, the later resulting in a solo show. He’s currently developing work for a Wellington based public art project in 2015 and is looking to travel overseas later this year.
