Four Winds-an Invitation

Filed under: Exhibitions — Tony Bridge @ 12:50 pm


Kia ora tatou:

It has been three months in the making, but I am nearly there.The exhibition to mark the end(completion) of my residencywill open officially on February 16 at 6:30pm, just on four months since I moved here. I am showing it in the Rail Shed behind the Information Centre in Ranfurly, and it will run for 2 months until April 16. If any of you are abl to make it down for the opening, I would love to see you there. Come and have a glass of wine, some nibbles, and enjoy the images.

For those of you wondering about the title, it really describes how the landscape has affected my picture-making . Over the time I have been here, I have come to realise that the winds come from every direction, and that Ranfurly sits in the middle of it all. There is no question that my fascination with the skies has grown, and more significantly, with thehe patterns of the weather, and their interaction.

It is impossible however to live in a small rural service town without being fascinated by the way in which the element(al)s affect the cycle of life here, and I have tried to draw reference to that as well.

If any of you are passing by, it would be wonderful to see you.

After the opening, I will be around for a few days, then I am off to the Wairarapa for a fortnight to teach with Freeman Patterson. I will be back in Ranfurly in early March to tidy things up and start packing, for my next move to……

  2. Hi Tony
    I wish you all the best for not only your exhibition but also for your next move. And I don’t mean the blog, I mean where you will create your next series of magnificent images from your soul.

    If your exhibition contains even a small number of the images which we have seen on this blog over the last few months and which might be in a size similar to your Darfield exhbition then it will be awesome.

    With best wishes

  3. Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? Is killing thousands of innocent civilians okay when you are doing a little government makeover?
    Are we safer today than we were before?
    We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
