'The wounded, the bruised, the blooded, the cut, the
dulled, the bright chrysalis'
This exhibition comprises photography by Dunedin artist
Martyn Roberts (BA, MFA) from a series
working with the subject of the wound. Using a special
effects artist (Zoe Armstrong SFX) and
models, the images are posed to make the viewer question

wound the inner wound manifest? Is it nonchalance? Is
there a recoil upon seeing? Is it beauty?
Are we all carrying the wound?
Bright Chrysalis builds on Martyn's work as a lighting
designer and especially in his work with low
light, dark spaces and the mysterious form of the human in
the void. In his award-winning light
installation Dark Matter, the
human form is almost swallowed up by the dense inky black
