I am pleased to announce that I have a piece in the ‘Kitsch’ exhibition now on at Matchbox Studios here in Wellington.
You might remember my custom cupcake munny. He has been re-vamped and given a brand new sculptural base.
Tuesday 20th August- Sunday 1st September 2013 Launch Event Tuesday 20th August 5.30-8pm
Matchbox Studios, 166 Cuba St, Te Aro, Wellington
‘Fine art has often been handicapped by an internal elitism that enforces a strict criteria of what art is or can be. Art that wasn’t considered up to the grade was often labelled kitsch for being too sentimental, marketable or having popular appeal. While this notion is constantly being challenged today it is still a tradition that holds a great deal of power.
This exhibition will showcase a range of works that brings a bit of kitsch into the gallery.’
