‘The theatre is... inseparable from its stage sets, its models, the experience of every combination, and the stage is reduced to the artisan’s or scientist’s worktable. It is experimental as science is experimental, but it casts its peculiar spell on every experiment. Inside the theatre nothing can be accidental, yet nothing can be permanently resolved either.’ - Aldo Rossi
Greer Twiss: Decoys and Delusions is the latest exhibition commissioned for the Fisher Gallery. The artist has indicated the aim of the installation is to ‘continue my interest in the way in which objects carrying loaded associations can be used to discuss human attitudes and behaviour. They [the objects] will deal specifically with decoy and classification. The various elements of the works are disposed over wall and floor by their inclusion and disposition occupy or impinge on a wide space. They are constructed of galvanised sheet iron, lead and copper-plated lead.’
Twiss is one of New Zealand's most highly recognized contemporary artists. He has obtained a substantial standing for his work and a prominence within the national art community. Twiss is highly respected by fellow artists and the professional arts community for both the quality and content as well as thoroughly professional approach he brings to his work and his teaching.
