A FEW QUESTIONS FOR ARTIST SAM MATHERS

A quick chat with artist Sam Mathers about his upcoming exhibition.

Tell us about your exhibition this month. Who is involved?

I will be doing something a little bit different, teaming up with Kayu Studio, a Mount Maunganui based furniture & homewares store alongside my works. Also showing some works of our guest Artist Lucy Galbraith.

We have been friends for a long time now and collectively decided to show our work together which I think will complement each other’s style and practice nicely. 

Obviously the official Raglan Arts Weekend has been postponed until October. Why did you decide to proceed ? 

It has been two years since I have held a show in my Gallery and basically couldn’t wait any longer – just need to get going. 

When did you start this body of work and what has influenced it?

Some of it’s older work, and the newer work was influenced from my earlier work still, but this time playing around with scale and using different cookout combinations.

How do art lovers get in touch and where should they go for viewing?

The show will be at my gallery — 536 Wainui Road, Raglan
