James Dorahy Project Space - Lit-up Like a Christmas Tree (Volume IV)












Thought I had more time but just like this year, time is fast running out as we are now in our last month. Well the gallery was kinda lit-up like a Christmas tree with a wonderful variety of works to tickle and tantalize and definitely something for everyone to stuff in there Christmas stockings.

Really loved ‘Glow Mesh’, oil on linen by Stephanie Monteith, it was the luscious reds and golds perfect Christmas colours. ‘Untitled 1’, burnt linen by Matt Glenn got a lengthy viewing, I stood in front of it for some time just checking it out, it had a strange power over me.

All of ‘NZ Herbs’, pencil, ink & copic marker on grid paper by Sarah Newall were a sheer delight and ‘After William Morris’ too. ‘Spring’, type c photograph by Alexander James, took me to another place, somewhere nice and a sensory delight.

A wonderful ending to 2011.
