The Incubator Creative Hub’s Threesome of New Exhibitions, Opening 6 May 2022

The Incubator Creative Hub is proud to present the next threesome of excellent exhibitions opening Friday 6 May 2022.

COUSINEAU

This exhibition of work by Christine Cousineau explores the visual dialogue between the two mediums, clay and oil painting.

Christine’s ceramic art is inspired by Japanese aesthetics, a set of ancient ideals that include wabi, a quality of austere and serene beauty, sabi, old and faded, and yugen, grace and subtlety. Christine enjoys doing functional ware as much as sculpture and ornamental pieces. Spontaneity, imperfection, and organic forms are some qualities that best describe her work.

“By moving away from perfection, I tend to let the objects retain some aspect of the enigmatic and elusive,” Christine says of her practice.

Born in Canada, Christine has been living in New Zealand since 1989.

Her ceramic work and paintings will be on display in the Incubator Gallery.

ZENTANGLE & OTHER PATTERNS

Award-winning, Whakamarama based artist Anett Pilz is showing her work in her first solo exhibition in the Village pottery venue, The Pot House.

Anett is inspired by the nature that surrounds her, ancient patterns from Asia, Europe & Maori culture, as well as the patterns of the Zentangle community. She loves that many patterns have a spiritual background. Anett is renowned for her delicate decorations painted on tableware and sculptural work, many of which take over 20 hours to complete.

Each piece that Anett creates is unique, made from stoneware, fired to a medium temperature.

The Incubator Creative Hub is delighted to present an exciting opportunity for snapping up some great works of art by our local community. This comes in the form of a silent auction in the People’s Gallery – Toi Ka Rere, where an exhibition of donated artworks will be on display. All proceeds from the show will go towards funding more exciting exhibitions in the Historic Village.
