'Out of Order', a group show of Contemporary makers whose work challenges the preconceived order of what jewellery is.
A re-ordering of the expected value system by utilising materials not generally associated with 'bling', along with expectations of how jewellery is worn, can be found in this eclectic show.

'Joanna Fieldes oil paintings are selected from the last 10 years of her art practice. Recent works are based on both south and west Auckland, and are accompanied by works depicting landscapes further afield. In Fieldes’ landscapes, animated figures, such as birds or rabbits interact with ceramic vessels. The figures sit inside ceramics, and at times become one with them. A myriad of gravy jugs, urns or egg cups become containers for history and for ideas. The scenarios depicted are a mix of historical ‘truths’ and fanciful, surrealist visions. Fieldes’ cast of characters emerges from landscapes which are based on her memory of places in New Zealand.'

tête-à-tête is about the exchange between people/objects. The literal translation is, head to head and is a private conversation between two people.In this exhibition we are looking at the transmission of information and how it can be taken or mistaken. Each artist has taken this and their own tête-à-tête between themselves and the work they have created

When is a Singlet not a Singlet? Incorporating textiles into my work allows for an investigation into hybridising something that can initially be understood as a garment but then also as a piece of jewellery or wearable object. A space between garment and jewellery that is fickle.
