Letham Gallery introduce our first exhibition for 2013 and we invite you to celebrate with us. Amy McKinnon, Jo Dalgety and Susan Thomas, a trio who met in 2008 and now practice together in their Auckland studio, present a collection of work which although individually distinctive, shares narratives of memory, place, displacement, survival and kinship.

Here's an insight to their talents: MacKinnon's work is a personal exploration of aesthetics and surrealism. The work can lightly be described as artistic Darwinism; each painting takes something from a previous piece and new clarifications, investigations and developments emerge; the survival of the fittest.

Dalgety's paintings evoke the life that has been lived in a space. She looks to land that thousands have walked. Her work represents memories of footsteps, past and present - layer upon layer of human history, attempting to capture the essence of places and the tides of history that have washed over them.

Thomas works with still life to capture a portrait. The paintings begin as drawings of objects from a friend's home. The drawing is abstracted and reconfigured to represent and explore the working through of personal issues and everyday challenges, suggesting our lives are complex, intertwined, repetitive and full of shades of darkness and light.

Escape the monotony of the new work year and join us from 6pm on Thursday February 7th, with wine tasting thanks to Sacred Hill wines. We hope to see you there!
