CHRISTINE HELLYAR: LOOKING, SEEING, THINKING

TE URU  Waitakare Contemporary Gallery

 26 August – 5 November 2017

Christine Hellyar has long been interested in how people see and depict the landscape. Working with a range of materials and formats, she presents here botanical drawings of a flooded Coastland Broadleaf Forest in the Waitakere Ranges, printed life-size onto silk alongside sculptural textile figures and upholstered furniture. Contemporary scenes are combined with historic materials and images to invoke polarities of colour, location, scale, period, drawing and sculpture, and fine or applied arts.
