New Plymouth based artist, Anneke Moore, will exhibit her latest collection of 'Light Work' pieces for the first time at KINA NZ Design + Artspace in New Plymouth with her exhibition titled, MERAKI, opening Friday 6th July 2018.
MERAKI - Is the soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work.
The exhibition features a selection of light works on old and new x-ray boxes.
The series considers the challenges of a parent watching a child go through the highs and lows of their medical journey. The works express something of that adventure, and the necessary way in which we must process and understand events, essentially out of our hands.
In life watching can be hard, frustrating, painful, scary, and heart wrenching, but equally it can be beautiful, inspiring and incredibly humbling.
Anatomical hearts, brains and sign language are used to tell a story of appreciation, these thought provoking pieces Anneke hopes people can not only enjoy but perhaps in their own way connect with. These works are all about how we process these emotions... because some times words just aren’t enough.
Meraki opens Friday 6th July, 5pm.
