Filani Macasseys - Contemporary Masi Artist 
Hamish MacDonald - Photographer
Tanya Bogdanova - Jeweller
Olivia Owens - Jeweller
Sophie Lankovsky - Potter

From The Gallery: The Gallery in Helensville, Auckland, would like to introduce Arwen Flowers, Filani Filina Macassey and Hamish MacDonald who are exhibiting their work in this current residency period. They are three inspiring artists whose art practices cover diverse ground in the way they both produce and view their work. Arwen with her reassembled torn canvas pieces that examine the transient space between states and moments, Filani utilizing Masi (a Fijian tapa-bark cloth) in a contemporary way as she ventures into the modern world, just as her forebears voyaged out in ndrua, navigating their world, and Hamish MacDonald who brings to his images an identifiable and relatable atmosphere that is connected by passages of music, lyrics and inspirational words. [Read more...
