Heaven on Earth

The Garnet Station exhibition “Heaven on Earth” features new works by Lisa Prager.

It’s a seriously diverse show that heralds a metamorphosis at Garnet Station with the opening of the George Prager Gallery on Friday 6 May.

Lisa Prager first exhibited over 30 years ago after New Zealand artist Philippa Blair discovered her making wax pop art in the basement studio of the family home in Titirangi. Along life’s path Prager has experimented with different mediums, continuing to express her creative spirit in private, until now. With the sweeping change we have all encountered comes a call, back to the authentic self, and for Prager this means a long overdue engagement with her studio practice.

The paper and ink Lion Rock dazzles in west coast seering heat, a synthesis of lived experiences at Piha. Other works with no nonsense names like Nude, Baby, Pool Boys, are simultaneously confronting, amusing and bristling with energy. There is something for everyone, including dining room objects d’art curated by Verity George.
