For the past decade brothers Mark Rayner and Paul Rayner have been producing art and running their own successful studio and exhibition space, ‘Rayner Brothers Gallery’, in Whanganui.
This exhibition features a number of ceramic works commemorating the late David Bowie, including three collaborative teapots.
In addition to his ceramics, Mark has also been making hand latched rugs, often featuring contentious subject matter including the notorious ‘Black Widow’ Helen Milner.
Paul has often drawn from pottery’s rich history, such as Staffordshire figurines, New Zealand Titianware and the Toby jug tradition, coupled with his own pop sensibility.
This is the first time the Rayner Brothers have exhibited in New Plymouth.
Art Decade opens at Kina Gallery on April 8th at 5pm and runs through to May 3rd.
