With the colour green acting as a starting point for a year-long project, Erica van Zon has created a shimmering visual landscape that riffs off her personal experiences and interactions with the world.

Peppermint Twist is a playful yet sophisticated example of van Zon’s enjoyment of the hand-made, with her materials of choice being embroidery, beadwork, tapestry, photography and textured glass. From 90’s Wellington architecture to emerald palm leaves to plump avocados, Peppermint Twist is a collection of chromatic narratives tied together by their formal qualities.

Erica van Zon holds a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland, 2007. Recent public exhibitions include Verdant Geometry, Scape Public Art 2018, Opal Moon Local Lime, Sarjeant Gallery/Objectspace, Auckland 2017-18 and Coffee Perhaps, Dowse Art Museum, 2016-17.

Van Zon was the 2016 Artist in Residence at Tylee Cottage, Whanganui, visiting artist at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2014 and the recipient of the Asia NZ/Wellington City Council WARE Residency, Beijing in 2011.
