It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the death of painter J S Parker.
A regular exhibitor since the late 1960s and awarded the Frances Hodgkins Fellowship at the University of Otago in 1975, John’s paintings are lyrical hymns to the land and we are keenly aware of his presence in each considered stroke of the palette knife on canvas.
We extend our heartfelt sympathies to John’s whānau, his person and his vision will be greatly missed.
Haere rā i a koe ka kōpikopiko atu ki Te Hono-i-wairua, ki te kāpunipunitanga o te wairua.
Painter Garry Currin has once more been named a finalist for the Lloyd Rees Art Prize with his oil on tin diptych The Light of One Day.
The award, which has a value of AUD 20,000 is an independently judged, biannual acquisitive prize awarded to the best painting to demonstrate light in the landscape. It was established in 2013 by the Hobart-based Colville Gallery in recognition of Australian landscape painter Lloyd Rees, two-time winner of Australia’s prestigious Wynne Award. Currin also made the finalists list in 2015.
