Blue Black Exhibition
Blue Black returns to Mint Gallery to show his latest body of
work in 'MOVE' opening Friday 18th November.
Mint Gallery first had the privilege of exhibiting Blue's
drawing and ceramic works in November 2014. Many of you will
remember the very successful show titled Earthmovers. If you missed
the show, read the review
With a studio in the heart of Dunedin in historic Kind Edward
Court, Blue's unassuming nature has seen him working away under the
radar, while quietly accumulating a growing stack of awards,
commissions and solo exhibitions. These include as a two-times
finalist in the Portage Ceramic awards - New Zealand's
premier ceramic awards (2006, 2014) and a finalist in the
prestigious Wallace Awards (2008). He was also the
Premier Winner of 2014 Lysaght Watt Trust Art Award, and
has been named a finalist in too many others to list.
Blue has been working in and studying fine arts for many
years, upgrading from a Certificate in Fine Arts to a Diploma, then
again to a Bachelor of Fine Arts, and finally gaining a Master of
Fine Arts from the Dunedin School of Art in 2010. During
this time, Blue regularly exhibited work in solo and group
exhibitions across the country.
Blue has just been the first artist to do the Rick Rudd
Foundation Annual Installation with 'Where the Wild Things LIve' at
the Quartz Museum of Studio Ceramics.
