Séraphine Pick talks about White Noise

Friday 23 October 2015, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

$15

Séraphine Pick is a Wellington based painter of national significance, and one of the most successful artists of her generation. White Noise, a major exhibition of her new and recent work is currently on show at the Dowse and we offer you a great opportunity to meet the artist who will present a tour of her exhibition.

Over the last two decades Séraphine Pick has become well known for her lyrical painting, in which she explores subject matter such as dreams, memory and psychology that dip in and out of everyday life. While addressing contemporary issues, her painting comments on the act of painting itself – not only its relevance today – but also its place in art history through movements such as late nineteenth century Symbolism and early twentieth century Surrealism and Post-Impressionism.

Make your own travel arrangements to the Dowse and meet us in time for our tour at 10.30am.   Afterwards you are free to linger in the galleries and lunch at Café Reka.
