Kate Newby:
A Windy Fire

Auckland emerging artist Kate Newby exhibits in her first solo exhibition in a public art gallery, using both indoor and outdoor spaces at Te Tuhi.
Newby's sculptures build on her ongoing enquiry into public sites, with a particular interest in the stacks of miscellaneous construction materials so often found in private residential spaces such as backyards, but which actually form part of the public's visual domain.

Her works are deliberately open-ended and whimsical, conceptualizing place as 'not only a particular physical location, but also an idea and mental construction which captures and directs human relationships to the world'.
