I am having a solo show of paintings, at the LeftBank Art
Gallery in Greymouth.
Why Boosted crowdfunding? Living in a small town in the
remote area of the Westcoast, resources in regards to the arts are
challenging, the internet has made it possible to live anywhere in
the world and make cutting edge art. It makes sense to me that the
idea of crowdfunding has emerged recently, and i see it as a very
useful platform to be able to continue contributing
my paintings to Aotearoa's visual culture.
I am needing people to contribute funds, and help me
achieve my goal in raising the funds necessary to rent the gallery
space for my show.
The work is about the intersection between Buddhist
thought and western postmodern philosophy. I respond to these
themes throughout the work.
The series of paintings elaborates on concepts around
'interrelationship' and 'interconnection" and I hope my paintings
provoke the viewer to encounter their own mind and contemplate the
consciousness where each individual's unique perspective comes into
play when visiting the show.
