Tina Frantzen, Lucy Eglington and Lucy Barker

A popular and accomplished trio have come together to bring us Ether. Tina Frantzen, Lucy Eglington and Lucy Barker all work in an elevated space, allowing their minds to wander and reveal imaginative images. Frantzen’s paintings are of enigmatic and elusive figures who occupy those small, ephemeral moments between larger happenings. She paints intuitively, the details of each being unknown to her before painting commences, so that with each work there is a process of discovery as the painting proceeds. By not titling the pieces, Tina shares this sense of discovery with her audience who are free to interpret each painting as they wish. Her two most recent exhibitions have been in Paris last year as a member of Who’s Who Art International. Her works are held in private and public collections in Australia, UK. and NZ, including that of the James Wallace Trust.

Lucy Eglington's work is concerned with the division between our inner and outer worlds. Subjects are often depicted with their inner worlds, their dreams or their ideals made flesh. Stylistically her paintings are 'out of time' and with more than a nod to Pre-Raphaelite and Renaissance aesthetics, however on closer inspection they are more contemporary. Her subjects are modern. They confront the viewer directly. They quietly hint at the less perfect, more internal side of people's lives. Lucy uses animals, insects and other props to bring these to life.
Lucy has received good critical reviews and has been a finalist in the Adam portrait awards. Her work is in private collections worldwide.

Lucy Barker is a figurative artist, working primarily in oil paint and pencil. Barker’s drawings explore the different facets of experience. Through distortion of the same or similarly-themed images, her works look at the disjunction between expectation and reality and the potential for unexpected consequences. She has been a finalist on the Adam Portraiture Awards (2010, 2012 and 2014) and in the New Zealand Painting and Printmaking Awards (2011). Lucy has also exhibited at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and the TSB Wallace Arts Centre.
