Mossman is pleased to present Sum of sound waves, the gallery's first solo exhibition of paintings by Séraphine Pick, opening Friday 3 July from 6-8pm.

In this new body of work, paintings shift restlessly in form between a painterly spectrum of dilation and contraction. Within the mode of dilation, wide watery brush strokes stretch dynamically across the surface, charged with emotive uncertainty. Within the mode of contraction, highly controlled dense mark making yields tightly orchestrated still life scenes that resonate a quivering light on the surface of ordinary things. There is a charged atmosphere across the works.

Séraphine Pick (1964, NZ) lives and works in Wellington. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Canterbury in 1988, and a Diploma of Teaching from Christchurch College of Education in 1991.
