Exhibition Text

Taking place over both floors of our Queenstown gallery, The Wakatipu Chronicle is a major exhibition, conclusively demonstrating why New Zealand art is openly acknowledged everywhere as being internationally significant and collectively distinctive.

It features museum standard works by Ralph Hotere, Jeffrey Harris, Neil Dawson, Ian Scott and Ann Robinson. Included are major works by the 2017 Wallace Award recipient Andy Leleisi’uao and the 2017 Venice Biennale representative Lisa Reihana.

Praying mantis-like, Aspect 2 by Ben Pearce announces the arrival of a singular new figure in New Zealand sculpture. Similarly Natalie Guy in Shin 4 delivers a work of singular certainty which is imbued with the tensions of precariousness.

Reuben Paterson and Karl Maughan’s critically acclaimed floral works are counterpointed with the figurative mastery of Terry Stringer’s An Allegory of Time.

Vastly different, unique particularities of landscape and place are delivered by Dick Frizzell, Neil Frazer, Simon Edwards and J S Parker.

Dialogues about time, collective identity and individual values are resolutely explored by Nigel Brown and Chris Heaphy.

There are career defining works by Israel Birch, Mark Mitchell, Darryn George and Paul Dibble as well as key pieces from Galia Amsel, Mike Crawford and Hannah Kidd.
