Erica van Zon | Coffee Perhaps | Dowse Art Museum


ERICA VAN ZON will be included in the exhibition "SOLO 2016 Six Wellington Artists" at the Dowse Art Museum, Lower Hutt, from 18 November – 2 April 2017. 

Her new body of work entitled ‘Coffee Perhaps’ features newly commissioned works by van Zon that have been inspired by one of New Zealand’s first art dealers, Helen Hitchings. Her influentual Bond Street gallery in Wellington was open from 1949-1951 and sold works of art by New Zealand artists such as Colin McCahon and Toss Wollaston as well as ceramics, textiles and modernist furniture.

Van Zon’s Wellington studio looks directly into Hitchings’ old apartment. Inspired by Hitchings’ pioneering and personal style Van Zon’s new suite includes works on paper, silk, glass, leather, linen, and ceramics as well as an especially developed and commissioned perfume to accompany the exhibition.
