For both  Anthea Birch and Gill Hay, the ideas for Still began in a fascination with the history and uses of simple everyday objects.  Every object has a story, each starting with its purpose or function - a vase for flowers, a kete for produce or a creel for carrying fish.  The stories become personal with time.  Uses change. The works in this show are contemporary still-life but taken to somewhere different

Anthea has a studio in her rural home in the Wairarapa and for her, the protection of New Zealand agricultural waterways and the fish that have, and do still inhabit some, is key.  Fascinated by the traditional form and texture of wicker creel baskets used for collecting fish she has continued to use this as a departure point for the vessels she creates through her practice.  She prefers hand-building and working with porcelain clay. The darker speckled clay body is a closer fit to the river environment and it also lends itself towards exploring the fine craftsmanship of basketry and weaving.  

Gill has continued to take known objects and set them in dark interiors reminiscent of the Dutch masters. Flowers have reoccurred in kete or vases but in some, these works become the complete subject of the painting and are not constrained by other forms .
