Auckland Art Fair
The Cloud on Auckland’s Queen’s Wharf
Artists: Philippa Emery, Samer Hatam, Julia Teale, Sam Thomas
Four emerging artists have been invited by Malcolm Smith Gallery to create a unique series of work for this year’s Auckland Art Fair. The title, Impressions, means to be marked, moved or stamped by something. It is also a play on the ‘artist’s impressions’ of an architectural draft, which are often commissioned to give a visual tracing of concepts and objects that cannot be seen otherwise, whether because they are too big, too small, in the past, in the future, fictional, or abstract. This series of artworks is about how the Gallery’s new architecture impresses itself on the artists, and in turn, how the artists respond to the new building and its surroundings. Visit the Ngatahi Editions and Publications stand at the Auckland Art Fair to see these artworks in the flesh.
