An exhibition featuring the work of Sayoko Pettigrew; a graduate from the Nagoya Zokei College of Art and Design in Japan; and Martin Letha,; a landscape artist who interest resides in the country’s mountains and rivers; and Richard Poole; a digital artist, originally from the UK, and now resident in Aotearoa.
Poole’s background in Information Technology has led to his current specialisation in digital art, writing computer code that creates artworks which can never be repeated. Each piece is "seeded" from a unique number, immediately destroyed after the image has been printed.
His current work is based on an exploration of particle motion, his attention upon; ‘fluid flow, magnetism, and gravity. Each collection is the result of hundreds of hours of coding time and he maintains that he spends a lot of this time, ‘balancing the desire for truly generative pieces that are not prescriptive, with the need for each output to be visually linked to the overall collection. Generative art creates a natural tension between chaos and control, the artist carefully determining how much entropy to allow in a collection.’
Poole’s work is complemented by the refined, minimalist iconography of Pettigrew’s images and Lethem’s landscapes, and his commitment to the subtle, changing atmosphere and perpetually shifting experience of light.
