“A Gift From The Night” | Canterbury Museum Artwork

This artwork is a glow in the dark, immersive experience painted using a neon palette, charged under UV black lights.

The artwork takes the viewer through an Aotearoa night scene, inspired by the wonder of nature’s bioluminescence.

An ode to the symbiotic relationship between all living organisms, every element glows with energy, resulting in a beautiful occurrence and what some refer to, as a unique chemical reaction. Scenic cues were also drawn from favourite sci fi films where the symbiosis of nature, light and neon were at the forefront of creativity.

The SHIFT exhibition runs until early April, don’t miss this unique experience!!! The museum has asked a tonne of urban artists from around NZ and the world to come in and “takeover” and leave our mark on its interior before its destined for a long long reno.

My Story

As an aerosol and stencil artist with a fine art degree, Flox has been making her mark on the inner cityscape of Auckland since 2003.

Her trademark native birds, ferns and flowers are a celebration of Aotearoa’s environmental taonga. Using distinctly vibrant and confident colour on a scale combined with delicacy they have magically transformed grey walls into vibrant depictions of the natural world.

Flox swiftly expanded her practice into prints, publications, murals, graphic design, live painting, projects and workshops for both schools and the wider public. She has been involved in numerous collaborations, charity work and both group and solo exhibitions.

Her accessible narratives have broadened the appeal and shaped her into one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary artists.

In recent years Flox has focused on refining new ideas, exploring other cultures and pushing her own artistic boundaries. This resulted in a three-month Artist Residency in Taiwan and a journey to Udaipur in India, to expand her international audiences.

Seen everywhere from Berlin, Hong Kong, New York, Taiwan, India and the US, Flox continues spreading her wings and making her presence felt across public spaces and homes worldwide.
