Now introducing Wonderview. August 1st we welcome Oscar-nominated writer/director of the Pixar short Day & Night, Teddy Newton, for his first solo exhibition. The show will feature an inspired and witty view of the world through this prolific artist’s eyes; including hand-drawn art that originated on his kid’s sack lunch and cut-out landscapes using magazines.
"I’ve often felt that people get old and die because everyone else is doing it. To me, the capacity to see the world the way kids experience it not only evokes joy, but also, forces adults to begin feeling things as if they were being experienced for the first time.
I get this sensation every moment I draw a picture of my kids or create a paper cut-out using random pages from magazines. The simple act of focusing my attention on subjects that elicit wonder and beauty sends me on a tangible trip, with the feeling that I'll never grow old."
There will be an opening reception from 3 - 9pm.
Teddy will be in attendance from around 5pm - 9pm.
