Solander Gallery in Wellington are hosting an exhibition
of new works by Dagmar Dyck and Cerisse Palalagi,

Dagmar and Cerisse will be in attendance on the night of the opening. 

Dagmar Dyck, Woven Strips I, 2013
Mixed media, 31x57cm

Dagmar Dyck: Between the lines....
Auckland artist Dagmar Dyck explores the graphic iconography
sourced from the fibre technology within her Tongan heritage.
Threaded throughout this new body of work is a visual process
that documents the transformation of raw material to woven treasure. 
The work remains sectionalised as ritual proclaims,
but the palette combines the energies and colours of a modern Pacific landscape
with the subtlety of customary tradition.

Cerrise Palalagi, Niutoni, 2013
Silkscreen and woodcut, 23x71cm

Cerisse Palalagi: New Works
Cerrise is of Niuean and Māori (Te Arawa) descent.
Her current works are about the interconnected mix
of  architecture, pattern & landscape within Aotearoa.
