• Andrea Gardner

Andrea Gardner's exhibition features a new collection of work that explore self-portraiture through staged photography. An exploration of the unexpected, it shows the artist's interest in the absurd, a deep love of colour and the playful act of spontaneously combining costumes, props and poses in the studio.

The Whanganui-based artist explores the psychological tension found in the female experience. Her works are theatrical and boldly coloured and composed; often featuring Gardner disguised in makeup, half hidden behind a wig, or a cardboard shield, enveloped in a costume, or inside a box.

The exhibition also features sculptural work and is hosted in partnership with the Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare o Rehua, Whanganui.
