Elizabeth Thomson at Page Blackie
Meet the artist and view her latest exhibition “My Titirangi Years”
Tuesday 21 August, 5pm - 6:30 pm
Join the Friends on an early evening visit to Page Blackie Gallery to meet Elizabeth Thomson and view her latest exhibition – My Titirangi Years.
Elizabeth graduated with a Master of Fine Arts with First Class Honours in 1988, and has received a number of grants and awards over the years, with her work being held in a number of public collections. She has taught courses in a variety of media at several institutions and, in addition to her gallery exhibitions, Elizabeth has undertaken numerous commissions for site specific works. She now lives in Wellington, where she works as a full-time artist.
Elizabeth works at the interface between art and various forms of natural science and can, at times, be described as a surrealist, whilst at other times she is a detached observer/investigator of the arcane and the remote.
“When the glass-bead surface of one of her works glistens, the effect is somewhere between a morning garden covered in dew, the static on a television screen and a visualisation of Pythagoras’s notion of celestial harmony. Such is the ambiguous, paradoxical poetry of these works.”
Join us for a glass of wine and tour Elizabeth’s latest exhibition at the Page Blackie Gallery and have the opportunity of hearing the artist talk of her artwork, and also the opportunity of asking questions whenever you wish.
Page Blackie Gallery is diagonally opposite the Wellington City public library.
