We have been meaning to get along to Kaleidoscope Gallery since it moved. We made it, finally! From a snug little spot on Danks Street the gallery beckons passers-by to take a break and wander in to its long and brightly lit space. There was a chatty host and a lovely glass of wine waiting for us at the far end.
Update: Varry hit us on FB in response to this article.
“My works are a collection of my artistic and personal journey over the last few years. I find that the mediums used predict the flow and final outcome of the works. Painting for me is very spontaneous,fast and often more than one canvas is lined up in the studio at a time. Drawing is at times the same although I enjoy a more meticulous approach and tend to slow down more. Printmaking is a process that takes time so drawing to prepare for a print may take days and when I sculpt,it is as spontaneous as painting,the work starts and finishes in day.I never go back into any of my works to touch up or adjust,they are who they are and whom they are meant to be.”
The evening focused on a collection of works by emerging artist Varry Niven-Fisher. The exhibition contained paintings, prints and sculptures based on life drawing studies and the human form. The theme tied the collection together though the styles varied immensely, leaving us to wonder if the collection spanned several years of work. Alas, we didn’t get photos of Niven-Fisher’s prints, but you’ll just have to take our word that they were beautiful.
