Exhibition Details


You are warmly invited to the opening preview of Capturing what Cannot be Captured by Auckland- based artist, Karen Sewell.

From 5:30pm on Friday 6 October 2023, the gallery will be transformed through sound, aroma, and sculptural, photographic, and painted works exploring the connections between the tangible and intangible, the abstract and the spiritual, and the diverse realms of sensory experience.

Karen Sewell’s works explore relationships between form, colour, light, space, aroma, and sound contributing to conversations on connections between abstraction and spiritual experience. The work seeks to evoke the unfathomable mystery and beauty of cosmic phenomena, and act as a potential threshold into the terrain of the numinous. The exhibition includes the use of spherical and circular forms in painted, sculptural, and photographic works that reflect artist Karen Sewell’s interest in celestial bodies and sacred geometries.

For private viewings, please contact David at the gallery.

Atelier Studio|Gallery look forward to seeing you and celebrating this show with light refreshments and wine from Flaxmore Vineyards and Stoke NPA from McCashin’s brewery!
