Sefton Rani presents his latest contemporary artwork in what is his second show at the Arthaus gallery.

Sefton has always been drawn to the stimulus of wabi sabi, the Japanese aesthetic described as the “beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete”. During his travels this influence has presented itself in many forms from antique Thangka paintings in Buddhist monasteries, to urban graffiti or the decayed walls of old buildings. This sensibility is integrated with his Polynesian heritage (Cook Islands) to create work which he calls “urban tapa”. The concept is taking the traditional form of tapa and reenergising it with modern materials, methods and motifs that build visually dense paintings reflecting the contemporary environment we live in.

Please join Sefton at his opening celebration on Saturday 20th June from 3 - 5pm. All are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
