In my own Time (Lonnie Hutchinson)

These works are part of an exhibition “In my own Time” by Lonnie Hutchinson at the Mangere Arts Centre. Part of the Matariki Festival 2011, from June 4 to July 4. The material is black builders tar paper (and metal fasteners), precision cut and beautifully illuminated. Definitely worth a visit.

Matariki is the Maori New Year, marking the appearance of the constellation of the Pleiades, and winter. Over recent years, it has become increasingly popular as a focal point for festivals of all kinds, claiming a unique New Zealand occasion. And in winter, you need something that warms heart and soul.

Next door, in Gallery 2 of the Mangere Arts Centre, is another fascinating work: “A Journey in Fibre” by Ngaahina Hohaia. A textile based installation, transported into another dimension by the use of projected light – very creative.

    Both these are so good. I love the lighting and the shadows in the first one.
