Ella Sutherland
House Painting I + II

CoCA Centre of Contemporary Art Toi Moroki

Ella Sutherland has recently completed a large-scale wallpainting House Painting I + II, commissioned by CoCA Centre of Contemporary Art Toi Moroki, as their inaugeral Two Walls project.


Adorning two large walls in the gallery's entrance and downstairs cafe, the work takes cues from Christchurch Style architecture, and CoCA's iconic Minson, Henning Hansen & Dines designed building.


Informed by recent research on the relationship between modernist architecture and social and cultural histories, The work reflects Sutherland’s enduring interest as to the ways in which the built environment, social space and language take form.
