Tauranga Art Gallery Toi Tauranga Exhibition Open daily 10am — 4pm
The Dividing Line exhibition 6 March — 20 June 2021
In my paintings, I am constantly searching for a balance between abstraction and figuration. Urban structures and people intertwine through a process of layering, obliterating and tracing. Images are painted in, painted out and painted over…forming a history in layers of paint which evokes the transformation of urban space.
— Lisa Chandler Tauranga Art Gallery is pleased to present the exhibition Lisa Chandler: The Dividing Line. Initially staged at Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei, Leipzig and exhibited at The Suter in Nelson, Aigantighe in Timaru and Expressions in Upper Hutt. Lisa Chandler’s tactile paintings reference both street art and protest paraphernalia gleaned from various protests and rallies. Seen on mass, Chandler’s works probe painting’s capacity to depict and evidence revolutionary change.
