Exhibition Text

The Arrow features new ceramic and corrugated iron vases by Hannah Kidd, Russell Moses pays homage to Monet and Graham Bennett to Bosch as he continues to examine the ecological perils of our times. There are recent sculptural works by Kereama Taepa, compelling landscapes by Neil Frazer and Simon Edwards, alongside still-life tondos by Damien Kurth. Nigel Brown’s iconic Madonna Mountain, John Walsh’s Kōwhaiwhai suite and Te Rongo Kirkwood’s multi-media cloak directly express the cultural values and symbols that particularize New Zealand.

Darryn George presents Christian values and belief as dramatic allegories, as pictorial idylls. Wayne Barrar delivers waterfalls as poems of light. Mervyn Williams uses the chromatics of colour to invent and suggest. Susanne Kerr reveals visual stories about clandestine behaviours and illicit promises. Neil Dawson’s important wall sculptures play with light and use shadows. The outstanding, time-travelling, enigmatic Rummo Waits by Chris Heaphy tells stories while providing no actual answers.
