8 April – 23 May 1993
Canterbury artist mark Lander who is well known for his hand made flax paper and clay pigments, presents a site specific installation in the Centre court of the gallery.
The installation which has been inspired by a recent trip to Europe, is designed to evoke a South Pacific version of the all encompassing floor-to-ceiling church art of the northern hemisphere. Wall space will be used to its full advantage in an attempt to give the viewer the feeling of actually being inside one large painting. The free standing part of the installation will occupy the central space of Centre Court.
