Christchurch Art Gallery is soon to open a major exhibition of new and recent works by the incomparable New Zealand artist Lisa Walker.

“Lisa Walker’s audaciously imagined works don’t sit comfortably within the contours of conventional jewellery. Co-opting increasingly unlikely materials – animal skins, children’s toys, even kitchen utensils – she confounds expectations, redrawing the margins in strange and delightful ways.”

Lisa Walker was the winner of the Francoise van den Bosch Award in 2010, and became a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate in 2015.
