a gallery presents



an exhibition of new and old work from five artists that showed with agallerypresents.com. Originally a small gallery in Dunedin ‘a gallery’ has become a forever evolving concept, supporting a group of artists that were once based in the small south island city that are now scattered across the globe. From Philip James Frosts bright and violent grime pop works to Justin Spiers dark atmospheric photographs. The works selected for this show are tied together with themes from the ever changing urban enviroment and the resilience and erosion of memory

Artists included in the exhibition are Philip James Frost, Justin Spiers, Sam Ovens, Jay Hutchinson and DDDCCXO
