Solo 32: Ten Academy Artists, 26 November – 11 December.

Solo 32 is one of two exhibitions the Academy has twice a year to present some of their best and most promising artists from around New Zealand. Every artist that exhibits as part of the exhibition has been selected on the basis of a portfolio of works. A range of media and styles are consistently represented in Solo exhibitions, and Solo 32 is no exception.

Patricia Armour
In ancient and contemporary culture, the moth is a signifier of the soul. In Patricia Armour’s fine tapestries they are souls caught in moments of transition, as if the women that are their subjects are always on the verge of change. She is drawing on the Greek myth of Psyche, and reinventing the age-old craft of weaving.

Roger Bagshaw
‘Art for the hand’ might be a tagline for Roger Bagshaw’s pottery: it is made to be used and loved. With its fine decoration that fuses Oriental and European influences, it is also easy on the eye. Continuing his interest in waterfronts, Roger will be showing a new body of work comprising tiles, bottles, pitchers and pots.

Alison Blain
Alison Blain will be making a show of jade, gold and hand-cut stones, as well as exquisite antique buttons. As always, her work will combine her passion for design and traditional craftsmanship. Just like her clothing designs, each piece will have a touch of glamour and the cut and shine of a fine garment.

Ingrid Boot
Long elegant and feminine limbs are a feature of Ingrid Boot’s meticulous paintings. Playing with dimension and scale, her ladies might sit perched atop small fruit, smarties, a ball of wool or a powder-puff. They might also recline nude across a luxurious Parisian shoe or wear a chef’s hat and stylishly garnish a bowl of moules.

Harriet Bright
How do we see ourselves and how do we see each other? What is it like to look at a body and how does it feel to be inside one? With such questions in mind, Bright’s drawings and paintings are full of honesty and a brave kind of vulnerability.

Helen Casey
Helen Casey’s intricate and delicate world is rendered in black and white, with the dark lead of her pencil and the white of her canvas. Often shading meticulously for weeks at a time, she builds up layers of tiny marks to bring her detailed and delicately-substantial avian and marine subjects to life.

Greg Chaston
To make his current series of paintings, Greg Chaston has first picked up a pencil. Drawing lines into grids before painting over them in oils, Chaston explores the constructs that restrict our lives and the ways in which we emancipate ourselves. Chaston fuses drawing, writing and painting. He pulls us into a search for meaning and invites us to ‘walk the line’.

Lauryne Hart
In Lauryne Hart’s bold and colourful paintings groups of people often work, talk and walk as equals, each part of the same moment. And when they are alone, they are still part of a collective culture. She celebrates life as mix of people and cultures, as something each person adds to because of, not despite, their place of birth and background.

Isobel McBeath
Paintings and elegant clay sculptures unexpectedly combine the sense of a royal European court felt under a distant sun and a return to the lush bush of Godzone, Aotearoa. McBeath is an artist who has painted extensively in Europe, and always returned home.

Noeline Thomson
The afternoon sun playing on the sand and water of Wellington’s Shelly and Kau Bays are given movement and an intriguing abstract life in the digital photographs of Noeline Thomson. Like a painter, she venerates the act and art of mark making. In each work she lets light create a subtle image that is open to interpretation.
