Solander Gallery in Wellington is hosting an exhibition of works by Kelvin Mann & Michele Bryant
from 16 April through to 24 May
Alphabet, by Kelvin Mann
"As a child I have memories of hand painted signs and font books around my fathers signwriting workshop. Some years ago I was working on a series of drawings and illustrated drop caps
based on Oscar Wilde’s fairytales.
After the birth of our first child I framed one of the drop caps for his bedroom.
More drawings resulted from the births of close friend’s children
and the idea of an illustrated alphabet was formed.
This proved to be a fairly daunting task as there is no escaping the fact that there are 26 letters
and at least one xylophone."

Long View, by Michele Bryant
"Long View is grounded in ideas around decision making
but also with thinking about the longer future,
in terms of family links and the environment."
