Aqua Frizzante Exhibition

On the 24th April 2017, I opened the doors to my first ever solo exhibition. A dream I have had ever since I was a teenager. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel massive amounts of pride when I stood in that room alone with huge pieces of my work surrounding me. So I want to thank everyone that helped make it possible one last time. Allpress Espresso for the amazing studio space. It’s exactly what I had always imagined and it was such a pleasure to work with you all! Queensberry for the out of this world amazing printing. I was so impressed they quite literally brought a tear to my eye to be able to view my work in the flesh instead of on a tiny screen. The cool kids at BurgerFuel and Long White Vodka for filling everyone’s gobs at the opening evening. To Nikon for providing the gear that allows me to do what I do and love every second of it.

Thank you to everyone that came in to see the show and chew the fat with me. I loved meeting every last one of you. Lastly thank you so much to everyone who purchased a piece. It really is so flattering that you guys want to put my work on the walls of your homes. Originally when I set out to putting the exhibition together, I only had a vision of all my friends and family standing in the room with my photographs on the wall. I couldn’t give a care if I sold anything. So it really blew me away that so many of you wanted to keep them forever.

Big churrs to my beautiful sister Katherine who wrote the poem on the programme that completely describes through and through how I feel about the ocean:

“The ocean is blue so it takes away mine

Washing away all the troubles that weigh on my mind

When I go to the ocean I dip in both feet

An action I will throughout my life repeat

But each time is different, I sometimes go in all the way

Depends on the weather and how I’m feeling that day

One thing that is certain is that it makes me feel right

To rinse, wash and cleanse all the things from my daily life

How does it have such mystical powers?

In its comforting embrace, I could float for hours

Once I have been I’ll always come back

It is my ritual and keeps my soul intact.”

For those of you that didn’t make it in, do not fret. You can view all the pieces below and a handful of pics from the opening evening by the talented Brijana Cato Photography & a few memories of my own. For all pricing and purchase enquiries please email me on hello@lolaphotography.co.nz with details of which photograph you are interested in.
