Archive > Ngaio Lenz – My Head is a Vessel 

Opening Event, 6 March 6pm – 9pm

Exhibition runs from 6pm, 6 March – 3pm, 19 March.

My work celebrates an aesthetic of imperfection, of the well-worn surface and the imagined history of an object. I have always been drawn to decaying surfaces, rooms and buildings, as they offer fodder for my imaginings of the lives of past inhabitants. Clues to lives long past, providing some understanding and connection, while appreciating the beauty of a surface well worn, or an object well used. Through the building up and taking away of layers, using paint, vintage papers, letters, stamps and wallpapers, my work explores the recreation of the surfaces I love, surfaces with a sense of history and a story to tell.
