Cancelled: Artist Talk and Tour: Jaimee Peters

Wednesday 13 July 2022, 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

$25.00 – $35.00

We are delighted to invite you to a preview of the work of Jaimee Peters at {Suite} Gallery.  Jaimee Peters (Ngāti Kahu ki Whangaroa) is currently living, working and painting in Wellington, after completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts – Painting, at the University of Canterbury, School of Fine Arts.

Jaimee’s practice aims to explore the tension between abstraction and representation and seek an aesthetic resolution that is just out of reach. Her paintings are full of contradictory associations of ideas and issues – fluid and static, chaotic and controlled, accessible and repelling.

Her process involves drawing from architectural images, usually public buildings, galleries and institutional structures, reconfiguring their linear planes with incompatible colour to make a new form part real and part imagined.  In her own words,

‘I’ve always tried to muddy what is normally a high-key colour and offset it with something incongruous.’ These tensions between colour consonance and dissonance underpin viewers’ attempts to interpret the work.  Her work is dynamic, energetic and compelling.

This event is a special presentation by the artist to the Friends of Te Papa just prior to the official opening of the exhibition to the public. You will have the opportunity to meet with the artist and learn more about her work.
