New Gallery Artist: Claudia Jowitt


Melanie Roger Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of emerging artist CLAUDIA JOWITT. 

Curator Francis McWahnnell writes in Art News magazine (Winter 2016) - "The recent pieces were exceptionally alluring, both because their subtle colours and elaborate surfaces made Jowitt's enthusiasim for her medium palpable.  I found myself wanting to spend a long time with them, and - judging by the profusion of red dots visible on the gallery walls - I wasn't alone."

Claudia Jowitt (b. 1989) has a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Auckland’s Elam School of Fine Arts. Recent solo exhibitions include: Liberal Application (Bath Street Gallery, 2016) and Goosh (Corban’s Estate Art Centre, Henderson, 2014). Work by Jowitt has also been included in curated group exhibitions such as: A Modest Addition (George Fraser Gallery, Auckland, 2015); Upside Down (Casbah Gallery, Hamilton, 2015); Pacific Materiality (Studio One Toi Tu, Auckland, 2015) and at the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair 2015. In 2013 Jowitt was included in the group exhibition "Porous Moonlight" at the Papakura Art Gallery, curated by fellow painter Imogen Taylor. Indeed Jowitt has engaged in many fruitful collaborations with artists and curators including Amber Wilson, Amy Unkovich, Rebecca Hobbs, Kara Wallace and A.D. Schierning. Jowitt was recently named the inaugural Tautai Trust Pacific Artist in Residence at the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic and her works are included in the University of Auckland Art Collection as well as that of the James Wallace Art Trust.
