'Conversations’ is an exhibition of new work from glass artist Elizabeth McClure and painter Lorraine Rastorfer. Although working in quite different mediums, scale and format, their works resonate with uncanny similarities in their consideration and realization.

Both are artists and educators, both have travelled extensively, both have lived, worked and exhibited in Japan – and both are mothers of daughters.

When they met in Auckland 10 years ago, they began an ongoing dialogue in which one by one these coincidences and their mutual aesthetic and conceptual concerns were revealed and shared.

This exhibition consolidates their common interests in a ’visual conversation’ of new two and three dimensional works which illuminate and traverse the range of material and mark making strategies both have adopted in the articulation of their ideas.
