What's on at Taupō Museum
Transfigured - Daniel Metcalfe
December 19, 2020 to February 1, 2021
Transfigured: to have transformed the outward appearance of; to have converted into different form, state or substance. Transfigured explores the blur between the digital space and physical space, creating a hyper digital environment that engulfs the viewer in abstract forms, bold colour and light.
Daniel Metcalfe – Artist Floor Talk, Transfigured
3pm Sunday, January 31 2021
Daniel Metcalfe is a young emerging artist from Wellington and is interested in exploring how the viewer perceives and interacts with the digital space when context and content are removed; bringing forward imagery and processes found within the background of the digital space.
Come and meet Daniel on Sunday, January 31 at 3pm where he will explain the concept behind his current installation work ‘Transfigured’ which is showing in the Main Gallery at Taupo Museum.
The Experimental 200s - Lianne Adams
February 6 to March 22, 2021
Lianne Adams is an experienced international artist. During lockdown, she wanted to explore and experiment with different mediums and techniques, using what she had on hand, while celebrating New Zealand.
The Experimental 200s are little experimental pieces all priced under $200. Each stands up as an artwork in its own right and all are used as tactile research for larger works, which will be on sale next to the smaller pieces.
‘Reuse, recycle and repurpose’ is Lianne’s motto with this exhibition while exploring her surroundings.
Welcome to My World - Steven Clark
February 13 to March 22, 2021
Steven Clark is a self-taught local artist and member of the Active Arts, Tuesday Painters group.
Steven’s acrylic paintings are exceptional in their photographic technical detail.
“Sometimes I use a photograph as reference, sometimes a postcard. But sometimes I just have an image in my head and I go to the canvas and paint. Sometimes those images come to me in my dreams.”
