DANIEL WHITFIELD, THE DOMINION POST
Sam Foley's exhibition Moving Image Paintings: Past to Present is not to be missed.
Foley's solo exhibition opens at Pataka on November 29 and runs until February 7. It comprises a selected survey of his paintings with animated projections as they have evolved over the last eight years.
'This exhibition marks my return to Solothurn after last years Altes Spital residency, with a collection of works that look closely at the historically famous brunnen (fountains) that pepper this beautiful baroque city. I tend to step back to paint a landscape. Here, stepping forward to where water meets water and light plays across the surface, this exploration is a move away from my usual approach, more still-life than landscape painting.'

This painting is going under the hammer for charity at the Otago Medical Research fundraising dinner, A Night to Remember, being held this coming Friday 20th of February in Dunedin's Town Hall. Someone could definitely pick up a bargain whilst supporting this extremely worthy cause.
Update - The painting sold for a record price of $14000, raising much needed funding for this acutely important charity.
