Her exhibition Frozen Instinct opens at the Red Shed Gallery this Saturday at 4pm. Photo: BRENNA GOTJE By LYNDAL JEFFERIES What do you get when you cross the captain of the Rainbow Warrior with the founder of Greenpeace? A contem- porary artist, of course! Brenna Gotje, daugh- ter of Martini Gotje and Susi Newborn, launches her contemporary art career this week with a solo exhibition of her art photography at the Red Shed Gallery. Alice Doig, a fellow graduate of the contem- porary photography dip- loma at Unitec, is exhibiting alongside Brenna. Brenna s exhibition work is called Frozen Instinct. She says it is a mixture of portraiture and abstract art . Brenna describes her style as inventive digi- tal art . She uses digital pho- tography and photo edit- ing programmes to cre- ate her images. My work is con- ceptually spontaneous and I m inspired by any- thing from music, fash- ion and films. Just by listening to a song an idea for a photo will pop into my head and I ll just go with it and create from there. Alice s exhibition work started as a Unitec assignment. I have an honours degree in psychology and the human condition really interests me. I wanted to create dark psychological portraits. The project has now expanded to include eerie landscapes and night shots. All her images were taken on Waiheke but don t expect sunny beach scenes. Oneroa after dark and night scenes at the sports park or on a dark road with car headlights in the background sug- gest sinister activity and hidden drama. Alice says: My work has a film still quality and is totally staged. The portraits are not true representations of the people being photo- graphed -- rather actors acting out a scene." Red Shed trustee Paul Rhind says: We are delighted to support these talented emerging artists by offering them free exhibition space and guiding them through the processes of staging an exhibition. My guess is they are in it for the long term and will become key players in the future of New Zea- land photography. Alice says: It s a great opportunity to have an exhibition like this, it really says a lot about the Waiheke community and the importance of community run galleries supporting up and com- ing artists. The exhibition opens on July 2 from 4pm till late, with music by Wai- heke radio DJ The Navi- gator and sparkling fei- joa wine. The exhibition runs throughout the month of July. The Red Shed is open on weekends from 10am to 4pm at 74a Palm Rd, Palm Beach. On the Rocks play at disco fundraiser Great night out: On the Rocks will play at the School Disco Live fundraiser on Saturday night. Popular covers band On the Rocks will headline at the School Disco Live event on Saturday night at Te Huruhi Hall. The gig is a fund- raiser for Living With- out Violence which lost its funding because of government cuts. The evening kicks off at 7.30pm and will also feature DJ Jais, the Otherworld Productions dancers, raffles, a full bar, and prizes for the best dressed and best dancers. Tickets are $20 from Shop the Rock in Oneroa. Bag a bargain at Te Huruhi School fundraiser Bubbles, Bags and Bling: Raising money for Te Huruhi School playground upgrade. The Bay at Matiatia is this year s location for the third annual Bubbles, Bags and Bling swap night. The event, run by the Parents and Friends Association of Te Huruhi Primary School, is a chance for ladies to find fabulous clothes and accessories to refresh their wardrobes, bid for designer items at bar- gain prices and enjoy a night out with friends. It takes place on Thursday, July 7 and will feature DJ Vanessa, spot prizes, raffles and plenty of entertainment. Organiser Nicky Cairns says: We re hoping to build on the success of last year and a larger venue means more space for us to display all the amazing shoes, hats, clothes and jewellery that people bring along to swap. Keen shoppers are being asked to bring along a maximum of five top quality ladies cloth- ing items and accessories, and only designer label jeans will be accepted into the swap. Nicky adds that any items deemed not to meet the quality threshold will be returned to their owner or donated to the bargain bin for the end-of- evening bin diving event. We want to make sure that everyone goes home with something they feel is as good as new and ready to wear, she says. As with previous years, any clothing left over at the end of the night will be shared among the island s op shops. Cash-only auctions will be held throughout the evening for the very best designer items and there will be spot prizes and raffle packages such as Cover Girl, Workout Girl, Girls Night Out and Foodie/Gourmand with vouchers and good- ies donated by generous fashion and beauty sponsors from on and off the island. Money raised at the event will go towards a much-needed makeover for the Te Huruhi Pri- mary School junior play- ground. Tickets are available for $20 from Te Huruhi Primary School or at the door. Anyone wishing to vol- unteer to help out on the night should phone Joyce Deighton on 372-8437.
