Parlour is pleased to present Bauza Island, an exhibition of new work by Ed Bats, from January 20 through February 18, 2017.

 

Ed Bats employs painting, collage, sculpture and installation to explore composition, colour theory and formalist ideals. Bats’ focus within his practice is heavily based around the concept of reviving found materials and objects, and reinterpreting them using a minimalist aesthetic. In Bauza Island, Bats presents a new series of paintings which he describes as segments or individual pieces of a much larger puzzle.

 

The public are invited to attend an opening reception for Bauza Island on Friday, January 20 from 5.30pm—7.30pm at 306 Eastbourne Street East, Hastings.


ED BATS (b. 1990) was born in Cape Town, South Africa. He has exhibited nationally and internationally at The Young, Wellington, Gallery 9, Sydney, and various galleries throughout Europe. In 2016 Bats undertook artist residencies in Berlin, Germany and Lyon, France. He is a three-time finalist for the Wallace Art Awards and has numerous works housed within the Wallace Collection and various private collections. He currently resides in Wellington, New Zealand.
