Blue Black: Lost & Found/ Flotsam& Jetsam
An exhibition of new and recent work by Christchurch-born artist Blue Black. Some pieces have been created especially for the Gore exhibition.
Black works with clay and a range of found materials, including flowers, vegetables, plant roots, egg cartons, clothes, foam and various other scavenged materials. The result is organic, colourful and often unsettling sculptures - reminiscent of body parts and organs, and only vaguely suggestive of their original form.
As well as a two-times finalist in the Portage Ceramic awards (2006, 2014) and a finalist in the prestigious Wallace Awards (2008), Black was also the Premier Winner of 2014 Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award.
