Conceptually the work of Ruth Thomas-Edmond and Peter Trevelyan has a lot in common. Patient careful craftsmanship, the slow meticulous creation of form through the assemblage of repeated elements and an interest in the architecture of space are characteristics of the work of these two Wellington artists. Both see drawing and sculpture as intertwined and both produce elegant, refined works, which speak to the world’s structures but also to fragility and ethereality.

In this exhibition, Thomas-Edmond ventures for the first time into collage and to the use of vinyl, while continuing the investigation of form that is inherent in her painting and in cardboard sculptures. Trevelyan ironically ‘draws’ his distinctive sculptures with fine lengths of pencil lead glued together.

Ruth Thomas-Edmond studied at the University of Auckland Elam School of Fine Arts. Since completing her Masters degree in 2005, she has taught at Elam and the Manukau School of Visual Arts. Peter Trevelyan graduated with a BFA from Ilam School of Fine Arts, University of Canterbury in 2000 and completed his MFA at Massey University’s School of Fine Arts in 2008. He has worked as a high school art teacher and and is currently undertaking a PhD. Both artists are Wellington based and have built up solid exhibition histories
