Last day for Jewellery Box Raewyn Walsh tomorrow

Pieces From the Kingsland Hoard at masterworks gallery

‘Circa 2012 – 2013’. Auckland jeweller Raewyn Walsh will be showing a selection of her latest creations, beautifully crafted necklaces in their most simplistic form.

Raewyn likes to use traditional jewellery making and silversmithing techniques. Methods such as raising, chasing and repousse help create her collection. Her reference to the vessel is a feature of her pieces where it represents both form and formlessness.

APRIL 13 – MAY 18 2013

Reception, Saturday April 13th. 3-6pm
(Reading by Lauren Capone at 4.30pm)

Please be quiet, please. (Named after Raymond Carver’s first short story collection) is Chris’ third solo show at Coup and sees a further distillation of his long standing preoccupations with surface and texture. His recognizable Therianthropes are still present, but are overpowered by forces flowing out and over these small panels against a backdrop of surprising colour.
In his own words: “There are a lot of things I don’t say, shouldn’t say. Things I don’t want to hear.
These are some of those things”.

Adding another dimension to the show, Chris is delighted that New Orleans poet, Lauren Capone has agreed to provide a series of ‘responses’ to the work. They will presented in the gallery alongside the paintings and included in a forthcoming publication.

“Something squirms to loose itself of me,
a thing not to say, I wish I wouldn’t have said,

mouths agape, as though telling.
Tell me:

Conflagration
And the stuff enters a soul.”

from “Symmetry of a Purge”
