Mike Norris - Worlds Apart - 30 October - 10 November 2008
Fifteen new works, cast in bronze employing traditional techniques, feature in this solo exhibition. The choice of subjects, from the Little Owl to our own Pukeko chicks are indeed worlds apart, reflective of a creative life encompassing two hemispheres. The works themselves are uniquely appealing and tactile. They capture the individual personality of the subject, be it a bird of prey such as the Falcon, or a vulnerable, downy Morepork chick. Each work is hand - polished with a patina of varying hues adding interest and beauty.
