Breaker of White Horses is an artist-run social experiment aimed at gathering recognition and acknowledgement of Family Action, a counselling and refuge centre for those affected by family and sexual violence, abuse, or trauma.

'Breaker' and 'White Horses' are allegories referring to the whitewater that helps to break down the energy of an oncoming wave; just as with the tide of domestic violence, Family Action softens the blow but cannot hope to dispel the issue at hand.

A series of portraits painted by Fine Art Honors Student, Alexandra Taylor, will be exhibited at the Lake House Arts Centre in Takapuna, and the Cellar Room at the Corbans Estate Art Centre in Henderson. These portraits identify a small portion of the Family Action staff that help run this caring and confidential place, where issues in relationships and the violence or abuse that many New Zealanders experience or have experienced, can be discussed.
In identifying these women, the artist seeks to liberate insight into a constitution of social reality within which exists a great New Zealand struggle.

Opens Tuesday 29 September 5-7pm
