Artists involved in OPp ARt: from chaos to form

Victoria Martinez Azaro- artist and keynote presenter

Creator and leader of “The Traveling Sewing Box Project”©. Graduated from the University of Auckland with a Masters in Fine Arts; Bachelor of Fine Arts with specialisation in Clothing Design, Whitecliffe College of Art and Design; Certificate in Fashion Communication, London College of Fashion, England. Professor in the Department of Fashion Design in the undergraduate and Master's degree, Whitecliffe College of Art and Design. Throughout her career she has worked in fashion and textiles, working as a designer, clothing buyer, press manager and fashion producer in Argentina and New Zealand.

Judi Lapsley Miller (Wellington artist)

Salvaging waste offcuts from framing material she frames her TinyArt bird prints. The framed photographs then form the central focus of another still life image. This merging of photography and fine art composition invites a compelling discussion on trace, even before her work is traced onto a distant church spire in Auckland. Judi is passionate about the preservation of endangered NZ birds and donates a percentage of her sales to wildlife charities. Two works feature in the show:

1. Still life of framed TinyArt of artwork "Emerging (kākā kura)" 2. Still life of framed TinyArt of artwork "At what cost forever" (tūī)

Gary Silipa

Glen Innes artist Gary returns to Somervell to display his work Bling. Larger than life trinkets made from waste polystyrene and plastic, on a chain, read as a metaphor of values linking in with the thematic exhibition premise, valuing the planet.
