Exhibition Text

The Wakatipu Chronicle includes Hannah Beehre, just announced as the winner of the Parkin Drawing Prize. Her new paintings combine knowledge and wonder, accurate observation and changing event, using dyed silk velvet and crystal to elicit masterful impressions of deep space.

Walters Prize nominee and New Zealand’s 2017 Venice Biennale representative Lisa Reihana’s Captain James Cook – Male is a large-scale, insightful character-infused portrait that reaches right across time.

A finalist in Sydney’s 2016 Sulman Prize, Joanna Braithwaite’s Moveable Feast combines in her wondrous manner the humours of the absurd, with the delectable food and wine of our daily habits and desires mounded on a staring beast of burden.

John Walsh’s State Asset powerfully conveys the awe-inspiring scale and daily menace that is Fiordland. Dick Frizzell’s Orinoco Driveway is a beautifully delivered ochre rich homage to place.

Master ceramist John Parker celebrates his 70th year and 50 years of his craft with a substantial book publication and a major survey exhibition opening at Te Uru in September. He is represented here by a range of single objects and the commanding Shiny White Still Life [15-4] set.

Neil Dawson’s Beam – Five Fingers references the iconic Chalice in Cathedral Square Christchurch in shape and its naturalistic leaf language.

There are also key works by Fiona Pardington, Simon Edwards, Andy Leleisi’uao, Chris Charteris, Nigel Brown and Chris Bailey, a rhythmic suite of murine glass vases by Stephen Bradbourne, one of Pat Hanly’s finest screenprints, and Paul Dibble’s emblematic symbol The Gold of the Kowhai.
