Full-time Mangawhai artist Rosina Kamphuis is holding a joint exhibition with Ian McGowan.
Entitled ‘Mindscapes’, the exhibition will be held at the Mangawhai Artists Gallery Thursday March 10 to Monday March 21.
The exhibition is a palette of both earlier and recent work, says Rosina, that aims to provide the viewer with a taste of a variety of images that celebrate her take on drawing, painting and etching.
“Every image is in itself a performance. It is a never-ending dialogue of thought, exploration and play between myself and its process, and thereafter, a dialogue between the image and its viewer.”
With an artists book Tribute to her name, and a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Whitecliffe, the Dutch Kiwi has lived in Mangawhai since March 2015.
“I was born to create,” says Rosina. “The Arts have given me many varied tools to play and work with.”
In The Netherlands Rosina became one of the initiators and tutors of Atelier de Haagse School, an art academy and workshop for aspiring artists with an intellectual disability.
A successful 2016 kicked off with her recent work Angel in Crypt, Barcelona 2012 being selected as finalist for the Molly Morpeth Canaday Award for painting and drawing.
