Exhibition Text

Michael Hight’s compelling Clutha River (2018) is the local centerpiece of The Arrow 2019, accompanied by two signature beehive works from his long-term project to encapsulate the major rivers of the South Island.

There are major new works by John Parker, startling in sensation and visual complexity. Reuben Paterson’s new glitter works demonstrate his trademark technical virtuosity and mastery of light.

Jeffrey Harris’s Head with Earring (2002-18) with a genesis of sixteen years blends allegory, dream, symbolism and time in a painting of breathtaking power and beauty. This is accompanied by White Painting (1988) a critically acclaimed museum standard masterwork.

There are major sculptures by Paul Dibble and Graham Bennett, new ceramics by Katherine Smyth, the beguiling treatises of light, pattern and carving marks of Israel Birch, the dissolves and presences of Garry Currin’s mysterious landscapes.
