• Jaimee Peters

{Suite} Wellington is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Jaimee Peters (Ngāti Kahu ki Whangaroa).

Jaimee's practice occupies a tenuous threshold between abstraction and representation, drawing from architectural structures – public buildings, galleries and brutalist edifices – to visualise domains at once real and illusory. Recalling institutions that are oftentimes inaccessible - “detached environments with empty facades” - the artist detaches elitist infrastructure from their original contexts, rendering them unfixed and undefined in a ploy to mitigate the boundaries they exemplify.

In this latest series, blacked-out spaces, sharp lines, and flat surfaces evoke Urbanism’s seedy underbelly, exploring our relationship to infrastructural materialism. Destabilised by incongruent confluence of colour and form, however, viewers are invited to find their own meaning in the abstraction, taking that which is in flux, fragmented and mercurial and making it whole.

Broken Spaces signals an innovation in Jaimee’s practice, introducing new large-scaled works (measuring 1200 x 1200 mm) that immerse viewers in their compositions.
