Archived: Merging faces

Exhibition by Holly Schroder

Merging faces is a two week long solo exhibition by Holly Schroder, held at the Allpress Studio in Auckland. Opening at 5.30pm on Tuesday 19th March and going until Friday 29th of March 2019.

Through bold shapes of acrylic colour overlaid with intricate indian ink lines, Merging faces is a collection of large scale painting work that encompass a quality of discovering hidden images. Each work is made up of different subjects merged together through movement patterns of twisting, colliding, shifting and intertwining. 

“Through spending time with the multilayered works, different things will unravel and emerge over time”.

A concept that has been an ongoing influence to Schroder’s work is called Pareidolia, this is when the mind perceives a familiar pattern of something where none actually exists - like the way you notice shapes in the clouds or rock formations. So through this element of discovery, each person could be seeing something different depending on their unique experience of the world. 

This exhibition will feature a large collection of paintings along with a moving light installation on the opening night, which is 5.30pm on Tuesday the 19th of March. 

Proudly sponsored by Allpress and Veuve Clicquot.
