We are pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Tyne Gordon – Sourdust.

Tyne Gordon graduated from Ilam School of Fine Arts and lives in Ōtautahi, Christchurch. Recent exhibitions include: Wet Plate, Jonathan Smart Gallery, Suntrap, Jhana Millers, Yore, Laree Payne Gallery.

“Sourdust comprises a body of work which is at once airborne and gutterbound.

These are paintings that offer a way to stand at the precipice, and stay there, just long enough to throw a rock into its cavern and hear it ricochet at the bottom.

As if a screen or recording device, the paintings are able to broadcast from somewhere deep below into the contemporary, and back from there as well. There is a transtemporal dialogue present, embedded in the energy of debris crystallised in the works’ frames or in the built-up textures that have calcified through months of scavenging and layering. This is not astral, but an intense tuning-in to the frequencies of particles as they have existed throughout time, and allowing this to shimmer.”

Extracts from the essay, Blood Blossom: words for Tyne Gordon’s Sourdust, by Jane Wallace that will accompany the exhibition.
