Aspiring curator Kendall Cashmore, is looking to put together
her first show. After studying Art History at Victoria University
and completing a course in Curating at the Sotheby's Institute of
Art, Kendall is wanting to utilise the skills she has acquired
throughout her studies, culminating in the opening of her first
Through this exhibition Kendall aims to promote a young,
emerging group of artists and give them a platform to display their
work, while creating a fun and exciting environment to encourage
people to engage with contemporary New Zealand art. This exhibition
will focus on emerging artists from New Zealand, looking to gain
notoriety and launch themselves into the public eye. Materialised
will be on view from 13 June - 2 July at Railway St. Studios,
Materialised examines the artist during a formative stage at the
beginning of their careers and brings together the work of two
emerging contemporary artists from New Zealand whom the curator
admires; Euan Lockie and Brogan Scott. Brogan and Euan have
recently completed degrees in Fine Arts and have begun to hone and
define their practice after an experimental phase of exploration.
As multidisciplinary artists they are always seeking new forms of
expression, aiming to challenge conventional and established
Euan Lockie works within the fields of painting and sculpture,
sourcing imagery from popular youth culture and street style in an
attempt to question notions of high and low art. Most recently
Lockie was selected to produce a sculpture for Sculpture on the
Gulf, an interactive and stimulating sculptural exhibit featuring
28 prominent artists works displayed along the coastline on Waiheke
Island. He will be creating a series of miniature sculptures
relating to his work from Sculpture on the Gulf.
Brogan Scott's work is driven by the desire to explore the
relationship between people and everyday articles, and our constant
need to fill and decorate an empty space with objects, coupled with
our innate obligation to find functionality and purpose in every
piece. Brogan works with acrylics, building up layers of different
coloured paint on top of each other in hand made paint baths. She
then exposes these layers by carving into them, playing with the
idea of taking away layers to expose what's underneath.
The aim is to raise $1000 to cover the costs of the exhibition.
The money will go towards the use of the gallery space for the
duration of the show, printing of exhibition flyers and catalogues,
refreshments and food for the opening, as well as marketing
Every donation goes towards ensuring that this exhibition takes
place, so please help us reach our goal!
Beyond this exhibition, Kendall aims to support and promote
young New Zealand artists who may not otherwise have the
opportunity to showcase their work at an established gallery.
