Exhibition Openings


Join Page Galleries on Thursday, 15 October from 5.30pm to celebrate the opening of Uawa Tolaga Bay by John Walsh and Rising by Negin Dastgheib.

Uawa Tolaga Bay features a suite of incredibly potent paintings that directly address the environmental devastation resulting from intensive monoculture pine forestry at Uawa Tolaga Bay, on the East Coast of the North Island.

Negin Dastgheib has always been interested in the concept of home. Earlier works focused on Dastgheib’s family memories of pre-revolution Iran and her own nostalgia for that time. A few years ago the artist began to expand and explore the notion of ‘home’ through other memories of places and experiences. She found herself painting from nature – a space she says she feels most at ease, most comfortable in herself.
