In ‘Watching, Waiting’ Culy presents a series of works that reflect her perception and interpretation of changes happening in her surrounding environment, and the world.

In this series, Culy has used colour, familiar objects and seascapes in an attempt to uplift herself from a perceived state of helplessness.

Culy feels that the period we are in now is an overwhelming one, with a seemingly constant stream of news, statistics and imagery thrown at us on a daily basis. ‘Watching, Waiting’ is the artist’s attempt to grapple with this, and shed light on the nuances of human beings and material consumption. Looking at the everyday objects we discard or collect, while also examining her own daily practices and impact she herself has on the environment.




Billie Culy



Billie Culy is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Napier, working primarily in photography, painting and sculptural work. Attempting to reconfigure the treatment of these mediums, Culy creates imagined worlds, a sense of escapism, exploring notions of memory, nostalgia and the importance we place on our surroundings. Her works are both records of places and objects, as well as carefully composed explorations of pigment, light and texture.
