Exhibition Text

New to the gallery, Michael McHugh celebrates the natural world. With a tightly argued rich palette and abstracted botanical shapes floating in space, he develops considerable sensations of joy and distinguished rhythms of form.

Natchez Hudson, currently based in Poland, turns the New Zealand landscape genre inside out. Combining the different visual disciplines of representational and geometric abstraction alongside the commanding use of unconventional materials, he forges entirely new readings of our imperilled world.

Acknowledged as one of New Zealand’s greatest ceramists, John Parker’s resolute conversation about a restricted palette, the disciplines of hand-built form, and the negative space surrounding each object remains central to his entire oeuvre. The result is – and the objects are – individually and collectively elevated by this restraint and Parker’s imperious delivery of form.

Uniting vignettes of New Zealand flora and fauna and by blending elements of pictorial perspective and sculptural space together, Tania Patterson re-purposes the still-life model into a momento mori of our times.
