Being an Artist: A Talk with Judy Darragh

Being an Artist: A Talk with Judy Darragh

December 9 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

How do you get from there to making real art, great art? There’s no special way; everyone has their own path.

Judy Darragh is a prolific New Zealand artist renowned for her brightly coloured sculptural assemblages of found objects, recycled items, industrial materials, collage, photography, video, and poster art.

Emerging as an artist during the 80s era of conspicuous consumption, Darragh’s work displayed a fondness for everyday objects and played with our views of material consumerism. ‘Kitsch’ and a strong association with localised nostalgia is at the essence of Darragh’s work. Her assemblages appear as structurally makeshift piles of ‘materials’, incorporating elements ranging from bottles, glassware and plastic to corks, feathers, tikis, beads, paint, flowers, paua and cake tins. It is this mass of media that form the basis of her two dimensional and three dimensional installations.

Come along and hear Judy’s insights on how she has successfully navigated and evolved her career to become a beloved and renowned New Zealand Artist.

All are welcome to attend this free event, set in our funky gallery space in Devonport.

Light refreshments will also be provided.
