Wild Spaces - an Asher Boardman exhibition

Snakes and Ladders by Asher BoardmanReclaimed wood, concrete, acrylics and indian ink merge to create images with strong silhouettes and geometric influences in our upcoming exhibition 'Wild Spaces'.

Featuring originals, limited edition and open edition prints by Wellington artist Asher Boardman, 'Wild Spaces' explores the interaction between nature and man.

Based in the Akatarawa Valley, Asher Boardman is inspired by the wilderness and mountains that surround her home. Unusually for a New Zealand artist much of her work features foxes, owls, deer, bears, wolves and rabbits as oppose to New Zealand natives. The works included in 'Wild Spaces' contrast harsh geometric shapes with organic forms to illustrate the impact and confusion that human interference has on nature from the perspective of the animals.

The last New Zealand exhibition by Asher before she relocates overseas, 'Wild Spaces' opens 26 February 2016. View the exhibition online at www.quirkyfox.co.nz from 26 February 2016 or grab one of the few remaining pieces from our current exhibition 'Through The Looking Glass' before it comes down.
