Rob Gardiner

14 May 2011 - 10 July 2011

For the Te Tuhi Project Space Auckland based artist Rob Gardiner has created a spatial drawing to be walked through and experienced. Here the artist uses found common materials and the shadows they cast to act as drawn lines in the given architecture. In this work Gardiner continues his enquiry into the deconstruction of painting.  In this sense, the current installation could be understood as an abstract painting pulled apart to occupy physical space. The work, therefore, creates a spatial experience and also references contemporary developments in painting.
