Parlour Projects exists to bring influential contemporary art to Hawke’s Bay. Over the past two years the gallery has presented a range of dynamic exhibitions by emerging and established New Zealand artists. We are continuously seeking new ways to engage with our audience and contribute to the wider contemporary arts conversation in a meaningful way.
At the 2018 edition of the Auckland Art Fair, Parlour Projects presents new work by Ed Bats, Ben Pearce and Grace Wright. A sense of optimism, youthfulness and an engagement with spirituality connects the practices of Parlour Projects’ three artists. Seen together, the works possess an intense materiality and physicality, with no clue given as to perspective. Ed Bats’ geometric forms suspend themselves above the textured picture plane; Ben Pearce’s familiar surfaces contain nostalgic triggers; Grace Wright’s sensuous lines and curves emit the sensation of falling into the painted surface.
