Johl Dwyer: The Caerulean Blue Room - Art Collector

‘The Caerulean Blue Room’ - Installation in progress. Courtesy of The Artist and Tim Melville Gallery, Auckland.

Tim Melville is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Johl Dwyer, The Caerulean Blue Room, to open the 2018 gallery programme.

The exhibition comprises two complementary bodies of work - the first, a group of three 2m-high floor sculptures fabricated in polished stainless steel, oxidised Corten steel and powder-coated aluminium - the second, a dozen 450mm square resin paintings whose glowing, polished translucency allows their wooden stretcher bars to remain visible.

Dwyer's new resin works have their genesis in the plaster and cedar ‘stain’ paintings for which he is best known. Fascinated by the way we experience colour in the digital age, Dwyer has recently focussed his practice on exploring the differences and similarities between pigment-based and light-based media.

Exhibition Opens: 6pm-8pm, Wednesday 7 February 2018
Exhibition Closes: 3 March 2018
