Emma Fitts | Crosses and Losses | Pah Homestead


Recent Work by EMMA FITTS is included in the group exhibition "Crosses and Losses" at Pah Homestead 23 September - 27 November 2022.

The exhibition features six artists from Aotearoa, working in drawing, painting, and textile - Alice Alva, Helen Calder, Emma Fitts, Julia Holderness, Miranda Parkes, Krystie Wade. They have research lead disciplines in common, through engagements with areas of biography or art history, for example. In a general sense, the art works on display present forms of abstraction with some vibrant colour. Shapes and hues appear throughout in various media, from the miniature to large scale.

Emma Fitts uses a research methodology for developing work that draws upon multiple sources (such as the disciplines and practices of other artists). Her practice is both a view backwards in time and to the present day; of particular interest is the lives of other artists. Fitts’s "Acts of Feeling: Arcs, Knots and Plains" (2022) is a sculptural wall-mounted textile inspired by Beatrice Tinsley (1941-81), an astronomer who discovered the life cycle of galaxies. This work is also related to the architecture of the observatory at Tekapō, with canvas shapes echoing the shape of the dome.

The Pah Homestead is located at 72 Hillsborough Rd, Auckland
