Mixed Two Emma milburn & JacquElinE morrEn Little River Gallery will be presenting works by two artists, Emma Milburn and Jacqueline Morren in their new exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ from this Saturday September 2nd. They are bringing together different geographical cultures, using different media and materials, both with a strong environmental focus from the manmade and natural world. Their work is fabricated by using old traditional techniques yet with a contemporary edge. Emma Milburn’s paintings depict elements that are influenced by the natural environment of remote and isolated South Island wilderness areas and her interaction within this. As a Wilderness Search Dog handler and Visual Tracker, Emma is acutely tuned in to analyse detail along with the ‘big picture’. Colour, shape, shine, shadow, contours,movement and texture influence Emma’s abstract painting style. ”The juxtaposition between my experiences of wilderness, and an urban environment of playing and writing music also bring an awareness of the interaction between space, time and repetition.” ‘Monowai’ original painting by Emma Milburn from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd For Jacqueline Morren this body of work is a new direction. She sets herself a big challenge to sculpt without training or access to technical tools. At times this has resulted in her having to create her own implements, to aid the stretching & curving of the silver out of one piece, without the use of soldering. Jacqueline Morren’s fine silver and Pounamu jug ‘Punctuated Equilibrium’ from the exhibition ‘Mixed Two’ at Little River Gallery from September 2nd “Maker’s marks are left intentionally; I have no inclination towards smooth perfection. I love discovering the magical combination of metals & Jade until it feels right, usually after a long process. This enables the wonderful greenstone to come to life, to its fullest potential.” The artwork is layered with era’s bygone, present and anticipated future innovation. The exhibition is running from 2nd until 27th September.
