Artist, designer and technician, Don Service is opening a new art gallery in Ōtautahi in August, RightSide Gallery at 380 St Asaph Street. Service has been exhibiting and installing and hanging works of art in private and public spaces for almost twenty years. His wall-relief sculptures and paintings represent the artist’s response to the landscape and environment in images that shift between abstraction and figuration, drawing their subjects from the South Island Waitaiha, particularly Central Otago and Canterbury.
Working with both natural and industrial materials, his work considers the small detail and big picture of the natural world, the artist refining various woods, metals and enamels in each work, his wall-relief sculptures paying attention to the qualities of materials, their surfaces and possibilities.
Riverside Gallery will also represent the work of prominent and emerging contemporary artists in its exhibition programme, including painting, prints and sculpture by: Sarah Albisser, Hamish Anderson, Juliet Best, Dr Suits, Crispin Field, Stef Gray, Joel Hart, Charles Hannah, Glen Jorna, Kate McLeod, Odelle Morshuis , Rachel Rush and Paula Petherick ,
