2 Years, 1 Building, a Studio Show: Isabella Loudon
Next date: Friday, December 08, 2023 | 11:00 AM
to Sunday, December 10, 2023 | 04:00 PM
Isabella Loudon is a 2016 Fine Arts graduate of Massey University, Wellington and since that time she has been making a name for herself as one of Aotearoa’s most interesting sculptors.
Her work has been included in large group shows in Wellington at the Dowse Art Museum, Adam Art Gallery Te Pataka Toi and City Gallery Te Whare Toi. Her primary medium at that time was concrete but over the last two years she has branched out into plaster, copper and discarded rubber inner tubes from cars, trucks, tractors and bikes. For Loudon, the space a work occupies is often integral to how it is read, she makes the comparison to how her drawings occupy the space of a page – ‘chaotic with one thing talking to another’. She likes to keep things tidy and organised in the studio but the instinctive way she works leads to a certain kind of chaos.
What to expect: Loudon’s studio is located in Marton, approximately 30 minutes from Whanganui. Visitors will be able to view the spaces upstairs and downstairs. Works occupy the walls, floors and the ceiling. There is no wheelchair access to the upper floor. The artist and gallery staff will be present over the three days.
Artist talk: Isabella will be in the space for the duration of the three days but will give an artist talk in conversation with a member of the Gallery’s curatorial team on Saturday and Sunday 11.15am and 2.15pm.
Where and when: 214 Broadway, Marton; Friday 8, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December from 11am – 4pm
Transport: Visitors are free to make their own way to Marton or the Sarjeant is offering a minivan shuttle service on Saturday and Sunday for $10 return. If you would like to book, please follow the link: Isabella Loudon Exhibition - Shuttle Buses (iticket.co.nz)
