Lonnie Hutchinson: Window Dressing - Art Collector

Lonnie Hutchinson, ‘You never know dear’, 2018. Builders paper and pins, 120 x 70cm. Courtesy: the artist and Bartley + Company Art, Wellington.

  In this exhibition, Lonnie plays with notions of windows and drapes and what we see and don’t see. Continuing with her signature cut-out works in black builders paper, and the interaction of positive and negative forms, she has created a fresh range of motifs - geometric, architectural, botanical and natural - to create works that speak to deep connections of genealogy, place and history.

Disrupting materially and conceptually, foundational concepts of painting as a window on a world, her layered window dressings suggest metaphysical landscapes and imaginary gardens that include the sun, stars and - with the employment of the poutama tukutuku pattern -stairways to the heavens.
