The contemporary art gallery, Macomos, based at the Five Mile Centre is currently staging an exhibition of solo installations by three artists focusing on original painting, photography, drawing and design.
Queenstown artist Marc Blake presents selected paintings from 1999 – 2019, installed across a 20-metre wall within the gallery. Featuring 30 original paintings, the show spans work made by Marc throughout 11 studios in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and South Korea.
Simon Williams of Queenstown is exhibiting a suite of new landscape photographs capturing the moods, vistas and seasons of Central Otago. The unique, signature atmosphere and tones in Simon’s work are evident in these large, masterfully executed, limited-edition photographic prints.
Japanese artist, Kosuke Masuda (Yokohama), displays brand new, sumi ink paintings on handmade paper, created in his studio in Japan and exhibited for the first time in New Zealand. Renowned for his bicycle artworks internationally, Kosuke’s highly original, contemporary paintings featuring bikes and riders are skilfully rendered and his instantly recognisable style reflects his unique life as a practicing Buddhist monk, professional artist and self-proclaimed bike fanatic.
Also exhibited are a limited number of distinctive, handmade lamps created by Auckland based craftsman, Justin Hurt, and made with exquisite finishing and detail from recycled native New Zealand timbers.
The exhibition is open daily from 12.00pm until 6.00pm in Macomos Gallery, Five Mile next to Flex Fitness.
