Exhibition Text

We hear it from all parts of the world - from major collectors, leading curators, in print from international Art Fair Directors: New Zealand art is remarkable and important.

The Earl Street Journal demonstrates this. It contains significant sculpture by Paul Dibble, Neil Dawson, John Edgar, Martin Selman and Hannah Kidd. There are career defining works from Mervyn Williams, Brent Wong, Pat Hanly, and Robert Ellis. The extraordinary achievement of New Zealand glass is demonstrated in key works from Ann Robinson, Mike Crawford, Layla Walter, Galia Amsel and Christine Cathie.

Dick Frizzell’s Grand Central is a fact-filled homage to Central Otago’s landscape, unique light and the fluxing alterations of distance. Michael Hight’s Castle Hill Station is an outstanding story of place. Neil Frazer’s Ice Slice is so compellingly delivered and accurate that it seems to be from the Alps itself. Karl Maughan’s Broken Axe is a wondrous amalgam of garden architecture and colour suggestion. Garry Currin and Simon Edwards’ virtuoso use of atmospheric effects and variable light demonstrate the magic and authority that sits at the very heart of great painting.

There are seminal works by Reuben Paterson, Harry Watson, Israel Birch, Darryn George, John Walsh, Nigel Brown, Justin Boroughs and Joanna Braithwaite. The diverse inventiveness of New Zealand ceramics is shown by Mark Mitchell, Bridie Henderson, and (Arts Laureates) Merilyn Wiseman and John Parker.
