TEN Artists' Talk
TEN is a group show of recent paintings by ten artists who completed their Master of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 2010. Exhibiting artists Anita Levering, Jessica Pearless and Emma Topping will give a floor talk on Saturday 5 May.
This very diverse group of ten artists are linked through their individual investigation into painting as a medium. This show presents a range of conceptual projects and ideas in a medium more than 10,000 years old, yet still relevant to this century. The show reflects on how painting continues to be a fertile ground for contemporary emerging artists.
A broad conversation with painting is established in this show, with contrasts and similarities between the works of different artists prompting an interesting discussion about the state of painting in NZ today.
