Steve Carr, Lecturer at Whitecliffe, recently exhibited Stretching Time, a solo exhibition comprising of three works at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. The show has drawn a huge amount of interest and has been reviewed on Artforum.com, Eye Contact, New Zealand Listener, and was part of a feature written in the latest issue of Art New Zealand. Artforum describes one work in particular, a six-channel video projection titled Transpiration, as a showstopper. “Large-scale hyperrealistic carnations are strewn across two gallery walls—a pastel spectrum of baby blue, pink, and yellow—their quivering tissue-paper petals much larger than life. The effect is exhilarating and just a touch embarrassing, since the carnation is a lowly flower, ubiquitous and a bit tacky, and offers longevity over beauty”.
