Roberta Thornley

In 2017 Roberta Thornley was awarded the Marti Friedlander Photographic Award by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand. As recognition, the Wallace Arts Trust presents an exhibition of her work from the Trust’s collection, the Auckland Festival of Photography 2011 Annual Commission, Tim Melville Gallery and private collections.

Running through her practice is a sense of never-ending blossoming and decay. Landscapes have the appearance of first light or dusk. Portraiture is a recurring motif, her subjects show an emotional or physical change. Objects hover in varying states from glowing to those withering into darkness.
