About the exhibition
Arbitrary Dreams, a solo exhibition of paintings by Meredith Marsone was originally shown at Corey Helford Gallery, Los Angeles, USA, in February/March 2017. The exhibition has been re-formed for public exhibition at the Millennium Public Art Gallery in Marlborough, New Zealand, and includes new works and works loaned from public and private collections.
Meredith Marsone is a contemporary New Zealand artist who primarily works in oil, and focuses on figurative representations. She has an extensive national and international exhibition history and currently lives and works in Blenheim, Marlborough. Arbitrary Dreams features an exquisite new series of oil on aluminium portraits. Combining portraits done in realistic detail with thick layers of paint that often partially hide the figures, Marsone creates a dream-like worlds infused with the sense of vulnerability, but also with sensuality and the sense of universal connectedness between people.
