~ Iain Cheesman

Christchurch, New Zealand, (b. 1963)

~ Combining a love of words ~ hand-crafted canniness ~ and a passion for the preposterous ~ Iain’s work is a perennial favourite at The Vivian.

Iain’s work is hard to define, but often easy to love. Quirky. Thoughtful. And often deeply profound, he marries personal experience with a deeply critical and keen eye for what’s happening around the planet we call home. A published poet, as well as an established maker, Iain’s practice is wide-ranging and encompasses painting, carving, sculpture, embroidery, and woodworking.

Iain Cheesman

~ Latest Films

We love making films to help you discover and explore artists and our shows.

Monique Lacey

~ Bipartiss Solucius

This is Monique’s third show with us, and it's her most powerful yet. Utilising apparently destructive gestures in order to create the work, the tensions between surface and form, image and object, playfully blur the line between sculpture and painting.
