  • When Church began seeing Crown Lynn ceramics as geographical features of New Zealand, she knew she had gone too far in the creation of her first exhibition to turn back. Spying a Kingfisher perched on its porcelain base, instead she saw her Farewell Spit. A kitsch conch shell jug was instantly recognisable as the Taranaki cape. Crowning glory marks the fruition of three months trawling second hand shops in the North and South Islands for the iconic crockery which, ironically, was produced in the Auckland suburb of New Lynn. "The challenge with Crowning Glory was putting together a jigsaw that was never meant to be one,"

    "You'll find Crown Lynn ceramics in baches and old country halls all over New Zealand. I guess Crowning Glory takes it a step further."

  •  The photographs I take are of sculptures I make. I build those sculptures by collecting found objects and unique entities that I transform into a large-scale composition, a composite that has nothing to do with the pieces it is comprised of. Once assembled, I photograph this new art piece and transform my photographs into limited edition, fine art prints. You’ll find my artwork playful, layered and surprising. The multi-step process of making my art as well as the continual evolving nature of artwork that gets assembled and disassembled means that it has many lifetimes and requires closer inspection. This is important to me because I believe in making art that comes alive; quietly, overtly, dramatically or humorously. It should grab your attention and make you wonder about it’s DNA and process, but always in a joyful way.
