Exhibition Details


Föenander Galleries is proud to present Chauncey Flay’s, One Million Marks & Richard van der Aa’s, Before you know it.

Chauncey Flay’s One Million Marks, is a fascinating and uncompromising project, that began with the question ‘What is infinity?’ and eventuated into a process of making one million marks from stone pigment. For the project, Chauncey collected, sculpted and polished 100 stones from across the South Island and transformed each stone into a small sculpture. Using the slurry from each stone, he then created a natural pigment, from which he produced (by hand) one million painted marks.

Richard van der Aa‘s exhibition Before you know it is a series of  reductive paintings that examine the point of tension between painting and sculpture, as well as object and image. The title of the show relates both to the way an image might communicate information before a viewer thinks about it – as well as the role the subconscious plays in the painting process, in bringing prior sentiments to the surface uninvited.
