Kerry Ann Lee

Will be exhibiting two works:

Work One: "Lucky Duck" - Lambda print 297 x 420mm
An illustration from Home Made: Picturing Chinese Settlement in New Zealand, a limited edition book by Kerry Ann Lee, 2007 (shown below)

 "When Ngan Fat bought a duck at auction the other day he didn't expect to strike it rich, but upon opening up the bird, he found a sprinkling of tiny pieces of gold inside it. It is the gold in the bowl that accounts for the expression on the face of Mr. M Wilson, head auctioneer for Townsend and Paul who sold the duck. Miss Nancy Ngan watching helps in her father's Chinese Restaurant in Tory Street. To inquirers we are now able to reveal that the duck was raised by Mr A. Ware of Eltham."
– Evening Post, Tuesday, June 13, 1950

My work is inspired by my subjective experiences of nature, mind, consciousness, and by ideas relating to self and my place within the larger universe. I'm self-taught. Painting to me is an ecstatic and transcendental experience, the paintings often seem to paint themselves.

Andy Macready


Photobucket 
Photobucket
Andy McCready is a painter and illustrator based in Dunedin, New Zealand, where she can generally be found at punk rock gigs or partaking of the free beer at art openings.

Andy holds a few degrees, which, although not particularly useful in day-to-day life, were nonetheless rather interesting to study - a BA (Honours, First Class) and MA (Distinction) in Art History and Theory from the University of Otago and a Graduate Diploma in Fine Arts from Massey University. 

These make her eminently qualified to sit in her bedroom and fuss about with paints and pencils.

Her work shares an affinity with so-called 'lowbrow' art, and she simultaneously draws inspiration from and wrings her hands at not living up to the work of contemporary practitioners like John John Jesse, Camille Rose Garcia and Audrey Kawasaki, as well as admiring all the usual suspects from art history - namely those crazy French Surrealists and über-cool American Pop artists.

You can buy Andy's work through Gallery de Novo in Dunedin, or online at http://giltandenvy.www.felt.co.nz and http:..giltandenvy.etsy.com
