Solander Gallery presents Shade, an exhibition of paintings on paper by Belinda Griffiths and pencil drawings by John Pusateri, spanning realist and abstracted portraits.
Belinda Griffiths is a conceptual figurative artist based in Auckland, New Zealand. Working within the disciplines of painting and printmaking, her art explores the expressive power of the gestural mark.
John Pusateri is the founder / director of Auckland Print Studio and a lecturer in Architecture at Unitec Institute of Technology. His work reflects an interest in the culture of animal preservation, taxidermy, scientific classification, speciation and extinction. His portraits serve to preserve and distil the essence of who, when and where and through subtle illumination materialising one from out of shadows.
