SIGN UP TO OPENING NIGHTS
AND OUR PUBLIC ART EVENTS
MOUTH and FOOT PAINTING ARTISTS of NEW ZEALAND
JOIN US at POTOCKI PATERSON ART GALLERY (41 DIXON STREET) for one of the weekly demonstrations.
We want to share with you how these amazing artists paint!
Our aim is to educate the public about spinal injury and the feats that can be accomplished despite challenging circumstances. We feel it would of considerable interest to witness first-hand what can be achieved when you set your mind to it! We hope you feel the same way. It’ll make your day. That, is a fact!
Also, partake in the fun challenges by trying your mouth or foot to a drawing or painting! It’ll be a work of ART either way!
Fri 22nd and Sat 23rd November
11am – 3pm
Prior to my accident, I travelled extensively, passionately performing in a professional cultural group as a dancer-singer-Choreographer for approximately 10 years.
After returning home, and with the help of my travels working amongst different cultures and cuisine, my interests shifted in the direction of food catering and Hospitality. I remained passionately content in this field until my car accident in 2006, resulting in me becoming a C4 Tetraplegic. I’m now paralyzed from the chest down.
During my rehabilitation at the Burwood Spinal clinic, I was introduced to an amazing art class in painting, where they had artists impressively painting by mouth, to which I attended weekly when possible.
In 2009, I was awarded a scholarship by the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists. I am honoured and grateful for this recognition and continue to enjoy painting and working with other local artists.
Join us for the Opening Night as we celebrate this local rising star of architecture. inhabiting: blue is Chiara Shim’s debut exhibition, opening Tuesday 3rd of December which engages the importance of colour within her professional discipline, extending into fields of
psychology, chemistry, and of course, art.
‘To tap into colour is to tap into the science of seeing, and perhaps the science of being in itself’ says Chiara. ‘I hope you will achieve a heightened sensibility to blue’, as created through
physical spatial models, Virtual Reality, and mixed reality projection.
Various flora have been sourced, dried, boiled, strained and reduced, the acidity has been altered to create a unique, irreplaceable set of pigments.
Surfaces have been dipped, covered, pooled and sprayed with these pigments to generate a different reality. These have been created with computer coding, drawings and digital modelling.
Chiara has a Bachelor of Architecture and is working towards her.
As a young practitioner, this is her debut exhibition.
inhabiting: blue opens 5:30pm – Tuesday 3rd of December at Potocki Paterson Gallery, 41 Dixon Street.
Running until 7 December.

We here at Potocki Paterson promote the acquisition of art. If you like it, you should buy it – even if it is for someone else. If you have a collection, you should add to it. If you’ve never bought a piece of art, you should start. Collecting is one of the joys in life. MY ART makes it easier to own original art work by providing interest free loans via selected galleries. It’s the new way to buy ART.
