Colour & Shape: A-Swirl with Art in Grey Lynn
Visual artist Joshua Kama-Lee Szabo exhibition opens in Grey Lynn
Toi Ora Live Art Trust is proud to announce the debut of visual artist Joshua Kama-Lee Szabo, with a solo exhibition, Colour & Shape, opening on Tuesday 21 August 2012 and running until Friday 7 September 2012, at the Toi Ora Gallery in Grey Lynn, Auckland.
Colour & Shape is an exploration in using layered recurring patterns in harmonised colours that build into an original and mesmerising experience. All the works are acrylic on paper and are available for sale.
"Although I do other work, I wanted to do something that was clear, clean and appealing," Joshua said. Colour & Shape is the culmination of a year's focussed work, that all began with Joshua's arrival at Toi Ora in 2011 and stating up front that he wanted to exhibit and share his work with the community.
Joshua's work is already in the community, featuring in the Colour of Our Community mural at the SoHo-hole end of Crummer Road in Ponsonby. "I really enjoyed the chance to do something different and work in a bigger scale," he said. He is grateful for Toi Ora's support - providing him with opportunities to show his art, as well as a dedicated space in which to work.
Joshua studied art at the Learning Connexion in Taita, Wellington, and was a freelance practitioner before joining the Toi Ora Live Art Trust.
The Toi Ora Live Art Trust is a member-driven art centre for people with experience of ill mental health. It has been operating since 1991 and has been based in Grey Lynn for over a decade. Toi Ora provides regular art tuition in a range of disciplines, and has a gallery space in which to display the works of its members.
