Accession number
Images made in connection with the exhibition YES, TOMORROW at Adam Art Gallery, Te Pātaka Toi, Wellington. Kate Newby has made a suite of ten unique cyanotypes with 5 artist proofs. This photographic method, which creates a distinctive blue image, has been used to record fleeting moments of sunlight shining through the holes in Newby’s hand made glass window panes. These glass panes, titled 'Always humming', were inserted into four of the gallery's windows, replacing the existing glazing to temper the threshold between outdoor and indoor spaces.

The works were sold through Michael Lett Gallery with funds raised from the sale of these works will be shared between the artist and Adam Art Gallery, Te Patāka Toi to directly support the exhibition programme. The cyanotypes have been created with the generous assistance of artist Andrew Beck.
