Christina Pataialii: Proximity And Distance

Wellington-based artist Christina Pataialii is the 2019 recipient of the Rydal Art Prize. In this substantial new body of work the artist demonstrates her uncanny ability to produce both stand alone paintings and to deploy these same artworks as building blocks within a larger installation. Pataialii’s signature embrace of both ‘fine art’ materials and those related to the trades is also evident through the presence of house paint applied directly to the walls of the atrium and large-scale drop cloths which will be suspended within the room.
