‌Double Dribble is an exhibition of new objects and paintings by 2018 Olivia Spencer Bower awardee Tyne Gordon. This body of work features water vessels, zones, fissures, and mounds. In Double Dribble, fictional spaces and forms are in a constant flux, dissolving and emerging, decomposing and regenerating.

Tyne Gordon graduated from the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts with a BFA (Hons) degree in painting in 2015. Recent exhibitions include 'Precarious Nature', CoCA Toi Moroki, Christchurch, ‘Water Park’, Next Gallery, Christchurch and ‘Croon’, 30 Upstairs, Wellington.
