Added by Dib "New Zealand can be a dark place. It’s like the movement of the tectonic plates. Every now and then, there is a lashing out, a flash of violence. But the other side of dark, to my mind, is the primal dark, the fecund dark of the moment before dawn, the moment before new things are born, the deep earth, the dark night. In these silent places, still offered by my sometimes turbulent homeland, I find rest and peace." - Emma Pratt.

40 Days is a series of work painted across the 40 days of lent in 2008. These representations of Mt Ruapehu were conceived of via a satellite camera set up by GNS Science in Wellington and observed by Emma in her home in Seville, Spain.

Opening preview Friday 8 August, 5.30 - 8.00pm.
