‘The Sri Lankan Pages’ is the title of an exhibition of new work by New Zealand artist Chrys Hill, who has spent the past 11 years working and travelling away from home–the past two years teaching art at the Overseas School in Colombo.
Chris has been exhibiting since 1970 and has featured in a large number of solo and group shows in countries as diverse as New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, India and Britain.
The works for this show consist of fragments made up from images and moments in Sri Lanka. These separate images are presented as a collected experience. As the title of the show signifies The Sri Lankan Pages is much like pages from a book that have been removed and relocated onto a wall.
Some of the units are exhibited as individual pieces, allowing for people to collect them as a separate work or to combine groupings of them into their own combinations.
The exhibition is at kOOii Art Spaces at 480, Lake Road, Hokandara (at the Thalangama Lake near Thalawathugoda).
