Bartley + Company Art promotes high quality, critically relevant, idea rich art in a variety of medias, by emerging and established contemporary artists. This is Miranda Parkes’ long awaited first solo exhibition in Wellington. Miranda joins the gallery with an impressive pedigree: more than 20 solo exhibitions, over 50 group exhibitions and numerous awards and residencies. Her exhibition zoomer brings together works made on, and in response to various substrates. Twenty small paintings made on pages from an old book are central to zoomer and were the starting point for the show. Miranda began the these during the lockdown, when, unable to go to her studio, she had to work at her kitchen table. Miranda herself says of her work: I have the intention that my work will offer a clear-minded, joyful and reflective space for others.
