Talk & Tea with Emma Bass & Finn McCahon Jones
Currently adorning the ballroom at Alberton as part of the exhibition 'The Impossible Garden', are richly decorative artworks by Mt Eden artist Emma Bass - a celebration of colour and life-affirming natural abundance! Inspired by 17th century Dutch and Flemish floral still lives and the joyousness of Matisse, they 'explore beauty though a manipulated lens'. Blurring the boundaries between photography, painting and collage, they beguile the viewer with their illusory, impossible perfection.
Come along for this Talk & Tea when Emma will be joined by special guest - decorative arts curator, former director of Te Toi Uku: Crown Lynn Museum and ceramics aficionado, Finn McCahon Jones, who will talk about some of the vases in Emma’s collection, which are a major source of inspiration in her signature floral portrait photographs.
Emma Bass is represented by Artis Gallery, Auckland.
Tickets: $15. Includes tea & scones and entry to explore the house.
