Reuben Paterson at Britomart Project Space

Britomart’s hole-in-the-wall gallery, Project Space, this week welcomes a stunning installation by Auckland artist Reuben Paterson.

Reuben Paterson (Ngati Rangitihi and Ngai Tuhoe) is a young dynamic artist, who is renowned for his glitter and diamond dust creations. Drawing from his Maori and Scottish ancestry, he has mastered traditional pattern and design using non-traditional media. Paterson has recently extended his practice to include sculpture; similarly created in his signature glitter style.

Receiving a postgraduate Degree in Fine Arts from Auckland University in 1997, Paterson went on to receive New Zealand’s prestigious Moet et Chandon Award to Avize as its youngest recipient. Returning to New Zealand, he completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Primary School Teaching in 2001. He exhibits nationally and internationally, including shows in the Prague Biennial and Centro de Arte Caja De Burgos, Spain, The Cambridge Museum, England and the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, Australia. Paterson has also under taken a major commission for the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane and for the Auckland Art Gallery’s education centre.
