Reuben Paterson

Lonnie Hutchinson (Ngāi Tahu, Samoan) and Reuben Paterson (Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Rangitihi, Scottish) are renowned contemporaries; two artists who have firmly embedded Māori and Polynesian world-views and visual languages into their practices.

Lonnie Hutchinson’s practice recalls Māori and Polynesian craft and decorative histories to explore how spaces are defined and distributed, with a particular interest in spaces that occupy a middle ground between time, people and place.

Though her work spans disciplines, from architecture to sculpture to digital animation, her most characteristic works are decorative cut outs made from black builders paper.

Reuben Paterson’s work, from paintings to large-scale public installations, is immediately recognisable for his use of glitter and diamond dust. These materials are deployed by Paterson not just as a playful transformation of recognisable decorative motifs — including kōwhaiwhai patterns, retro floral textile designs, and geometric tessellations — but also a deliberate exploration of glitter’s optical potential and the socio-political connotations of sparkly adornment.

This exhibition brings their work together to explore the recurring aesthetic, political and spiritual use of light and darkness that runs through Hutchinson and Paterson’s works.

Lonnie Hutchinson and Reuben Paterson will give an artist talk on Saturday 24 June at 3pm preceding the official opening at 4pm.

Opening 24 June, 4-6pm.
