Audi Five Cities Showcase: Moving Towards
Audi Five Cities Showcase: Moving Towards by artist Sandra Turner-Barlow
In the face of social upheaval, amid times of uncertainty, art can be daring. An unprecedented global pandemic has seen today’s artists respond with their own reactions towards extraordinary fractures in civil society.
Rather than painting personal pandemic-inspired reflections, Sandra Turner-Barlow presents a grand narrative of New Zealand’s five major cities, capturing what she determines as their current critical moving parts. Presenting a unique series of stylised oil paintings entitled, Moving Towards, she invites the viewer to not only see what is, but to engage in a conversation as to what each city might be moving towards as they establish their own post pandemic status.
