Weasel Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, MOVING PAST THE SUN, a solo exhibition by New Zealand born artist, Kohl Tyler-Dunshea (who is now based in Melbourne).
Having previously exhibited with the Gallery in 2018, Tyler-Dunshea is no stranger to the space. Past exhibitions have seen Tyler-Dunshea focus on the identification and depiction of found species within the artists given purlieu and within the historical context of botanical documentation. Foraging, identification and pressing/storing a variety of species became integral precursory processes within Tyler-Dunshea's practice. MOVING PAST THE SUN sees an increasing social and environmental underpinning whilst evidence of process still remains including linear tape marks as a spacial device.
MOVING PAST THE SUN considers the deminishing venerative relationship between people and the sun. Tyler-Dunshea explains "These plant specimens once reached towards the warmth of the sun. Noticing, pressing, then painting them, serves as a meditation on the tensile relationship between the energy on one sphere and the life forms on the other."
MOVING PAST THE SUN will see a new suite of work by the artist, with confident scale and marked mastery of her medium; watercolour paint.
