Artists Project: Robert Jesson

This exhibition is now closed

Robert Jesson is a British born sculptor, now living and working in Auckland.

After a recent highly successful exhibition at Auckland's Closet Gallery, the McDougall arranged for Robert Jesson to undertake an Artist's Project installation in Christchurch where his work has not previously been seen.

Jesson's installations of suspended plywood forms, lacquered in strong colours have created considerable interest. His sculptures are aggressive pieces that possess a distinctly personal style and project an impressive sculptural presence.

Ray Castle of the Closet Gallery together with Robert Jesson will present a slide lecture at the opening on February 2nd at 7.45 pm.
