Hannah Kidd is one of the most distinctive voices in NZ sculpture.

Her works demonstrate an uncanny ability to capture the essence of her subjects. Kidd’s fundamental mastery of representational disciplines – anatomical accuracy, portrayal of character, personality, animal spirit, bodily disposition and so on – is almost without parallel in NZ sculpture. She also has an eye for social values and mores, speaks with a rural vernacular which is deeply informed by observation, participation and a noticeably wry sense of humour.

In The Race Kidd has turned her attention to the gallops. Kidd uses motion as a dramatic device. Nine horses and riders battle their way to a result. Kidd clearly understands the subtle differences at a race meeting between winning and losing, between being first and last. The horses are running flat out, the jockeys are working using all their individual skills and styles. It is a battle, fought everyday on the racecourses around the country. All spoils to the victor, all reward to those who picked the result and backed the winner!

EXHIBITION PRICELIST All works in the exhibition are $11,500 each, including a wooden plinth All prices are NZD and include GST; Prices are current at the time of the exhibition

Domestic Bliss (Pair) (2011)

Methvan based sculptor Hannah Kidd predominantly crafts and welds sculptural creations from steel rod and corrugated iron as a means to investigate people and the relationships they have with their surrounding environment. “Kidd’s works remind us we are New Zealanders and explore our relationships with each other and our environments”. (1) Kidd’s subject matter has focused on witty and often comical animal studies which she has used as a vehicle to discuss the human condition. “Kidd’s works are covered with flat tin, spot-welded, and remarkably detailed, notwithstanding their clear origins in bits of roofing iron. She will take on any living subject, from humans to horses.” (2) Hannah Kidd graduated in 2001 from the Otago Polytechnic School of Art with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in sculpture. She has quickly risen to critical acclaim with her distinctive and unique work being exhibited around the world including I’m sure I’ve seen that before, Vienna, Austria (2002), Sculpture by the Sea, Australia (2007, 2009 & 2011) Sculpture by the Sea, Denmark (2009 & 2011) along with numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout New Zealand. In 2010 she was the Winner of the Montalto Sculpture Award, Australia and the People’s Choice Award at NZ Sculpture OnShore and in 2012 was a finalist in the Montalto Sculpture Award, Australia and the New Zealand Wallace Art Awards.
