Escape From New York opening 5:00pm 2/4/21 Olga Gallery

In late 2019 two Auckland based photographers and a Dunedin based sculptor travelled to New York. What they didn’t realise at the time, was that within mere months the world would be ‘locked down’ due to a global pandemic. This exhibition showcases a snapshot of the artists time spent in a country that many of us no longer have access to.

Petra Leary is an Auckland based photographer. She has an innate design sensibility, reflected in her unique process all the way from conception to post-production. An intrepid world traveller often hunting out unusual landscapes, manipulating and accentuating colours in post-production to create her final work.

Jay Hutchinson is a Dunedin based artist who works with textiles. His practice follows a pychogeographical model where he recreates found structures and objects with fabric and thread. His work explores urban erosion and the waste and decay of capitalism.

Tim Deynzer (Tim D) is an Auckland based photographer. Driven by an obsession with capturing the perfect moment on film, his practice is based on documenting endless changing urban environments and the characters within them.
