Traces of the Past Exhibition

Sunday 4th-Wednesday 21st March 2018

Dividing her time between Germany and New Zealand, Tasman artist Lisa Chandler combines her two homes in 'Traces from the Past'. Chandler explores historical Nelson and Tasman imagery using a 'trace mono-printing' technique. The exhibition is itself an installation, with new paintings added each week to culminate in a total of 50 small works. The German practice of a ‘Finissage’ (or closing party) will mark the conclusion of 'Traces from the Past' on Wednesday 21 March at 5.30pm all welcome.

Installation dates:
Wednesday 28th February (14 paintings)
Wednesday 7th March (26 paintings)
Wednesday 14th March (38 paintings)
Wednesday 21st March (50 paintings) including the Finissage, 5.30pm, all welcome.

We normally ignore abandoned places, but if we pause to look and explore, we rediscover old worlds that are slowly disappearing. What brought people to this place and why did they leave?
