In connection with her current solo exhibition at Adam Art Gallery, Te Pātaka Toi, Wellington, Kate Newby has made a suite of ten unique cyanotypes. This photographic method, which creates a distinctive blue image, has been used to record fleeting moments of sunlight shining through the holes in Newby’s hand made glass window panes. These glass panes, titled Always humming, have been inserted into several of the museum’s windows, replacing the existing glazing to temper the threshold between outdoor and indoor spaces, both of which are critical to Newby’s practice.
Funds raised from the sale of these works will be shared between the artist and Adam Art Gallery, Te Patāka Toi to directly support the exhibition programme. The cyanotypes have been created with the generous assistance of Andrew Beck.
