‘Earth-dialogue’ exhibition was on displayed in Waiheke Community Art Gallery, New Zealand 24.1.-1.3.2020. The exhibition is based on the creative process that took place in year 2015 when Maarit Mäkelä lived and worked in Waiheke. The core of Mäkelä’s artistic practice is the local, natural environment and in particular earth samples she gathers during her walks. These materials are processed further and then used as clay body for the works, and as coloured slips for the paintings. At 1060°C the paintings that are made to clay transforms into ceramic. The exhibition consists of paintings on clay and paper, and documentary photographs of local places and materials she encountered during her walks to collect materials. Earth-dialogue also contains samples of sand, stone and clay.
