Potters & Painters
At The Vivian, Matakana 21 February – 22 March 2015. A group exhibition.
Fran Maguire and Joanna Fieldes have shared four joint exhibitions since 2010. This is the first time they have collaborated on the same pieces.
Because both artists have worked closely together on exhibitions over the past five years they have developed a sensitivity for each other's work. The vases Maguire has created are an ideal medium and form to express through Fieldes' painting the similar ideas each hold of the imported versus the indigenous; containers of history linking past to present and pointing to the challenges and consequences existing today because of opportunities presented in the past.
