We are pleased to announce an exhibition Peels by Ella Harrington Knapton on April 21 (Sat) & 22 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.
Ella Harrington Knapton is a multidisciplinary artist based in Dunedin, New Zealand.
She Completed her Bachelor of Visual Art at the Dunedin School of art in 2014 and was awarded the Feldspar scholarship in 2015. She has since been involved in several exhibitions and projects in Dunedin including poetry and fashion collaborations.
Working within contemporary drawing practice Ella’s work and research engages in human relationships with complexity, disorder and control and how that directly relates to drawing practice itself.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
In a system of layered mark making, these drawings map spaces contained within coverings. Exploring notions of control and preservation with a reference to presentation in Japanese consumer culture.
The finished work contains a complex special conversation throughout.
