4 December 2013 | Richard Orjis has just been awarded the Tylee Cottage Residency for 2014.

Tylee Cottage is a renovated historic building on the grounds of the Sarjeant Gallery in Wangunaui in New Zealand. The artist in residence program is the longest running residency in the country. Anne Noble, Ans Westra, John Beard, Gregor Kregar, Matt Couper and Ann Shelton have all been past recipients of the Tylee Cottage Residency.

Orjis will undertake a four month residency from late Februrary to June next year. He creates alluring and ritualistic photographic prints that revolve around four intersecting and fluid themes - nature, cult, myth and the gothic. His work has been collected by numerous private and public collections including the University of Auckland, the Wallace Trust Collection in Auckland and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport collection in Madrid.
