Mary Spacapan’s work is strongly gestural—using colour, composition and rich, buildable texture to explore the animated nature of the whenua. Painter, writer and sculptor, she creates as she experiences the world: tiny inputs collected, placed—a curation of moments over time. Every mark is movement. Chaotic at times, the fragments are often at odds with every other in the concert of canvas. It is only when stepping back to consider the composition as a whole, that the viewer is met with a rhythmic invitation of stillness.
