Martin Doyle
Martin Doyle was born in Wellington and is a self-taught artist. He has drawn cartoons as a hobby and passion, and also on contract, for the last twenty years.
His work, in this exhibition, is predominantly acrylic on hardboard. Martin states "If people want exact likenesses they should look at photos; if they want comfortable social images made for mass consumption they should just stick to T.V." Martin is willing to provide a personal interview or provide a written statement for those interested in doing a review of this exhibition.
Sue Dorrington
Sue Dorrington's exhibition "The Long White Shadow of Cheng Ho' is a series of Asian influenced paintings exploring the tension of increasing Asian impact on New Zealand culture. Using Chinese symbolism and artistic protocols, these pieces look at various aspects of how we embrace the Chinese culture.
Sue Dorrington worked on a Chinese puppet theatre documenting the life of the great early Chinese explorer Cheng Ho. This project sparked her interest in the protocols of Chinese art and its refined understanding of brushstroke.
