Roma Anderson: New works
15 January to 3 February 2019
Roma Anderson is a local artist who recently graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts. Throughout her studies she has been investigating the nearby Tamaki Estuary, documenting the ever-changing environment and surrounding flora and fauna with a wider focus on the agency of environments and how they are valued aesthetically and politically.
For this exhibition, Anderson will showcase several images from her Estuary investigation, bringing focus and attention to this fragile ecosystem.
Anderson is an avid analogue and digital alternative method artist, she never does things quite in the way they are conventionally done. Alongside her environmental concerns, she is particularly interested in politics of female representation in cinema, and the roles of spectator, voyeur, auteur and character in film.
