1 November – 27 November 1990
From 31 October until 27 November, the Art Annex will be exhibiting an installation by young Christchurch sculptor Philip Price. Philip completed his BFA in sculpture at the University of Canterbury in 1988, and was holder of the Rosemary Johnson Muller Scholarship for 1986. He held his first solo exhibition, Black on Yellow, White on Blue, at the CSA Gallery in 1987, and in October 1988 was included in Here and Now, the Art Annex's inaugural exhibition. In 1989 Philip took part in an exhibition at the Manawatu Art Gallery entitled General Motors: Three Canterbury Sculptors. He has also worked as a set designer for the Canterbury Opera.
Philip is currently working on sculpture in metals and plastics which expresses his interest in the formal aspects of industrial design. Looking particularly at aerodynamic forms such as those found in aeroplanes and cars, Philip is also concerned with the organic predecessors of these forms – birds and fish.
This promises to be an exciting and challenging exhibition by an innovative Canterbury sculptor.
