Exhibition Text

Reuben Paterson’s astonishing new screen prints (This Little Light of Mine, GPS), Darryn George’s geometric, textural, abstractions and Te Rongo Kirkwood’s table-top glass all use and adapt patterns sourced from the traditions of Maori carving and design.

Tony Bishop locates rhythms and patterns in the southern landscape whereas Neal Palmer finds these in the leaves of flax. Callum Arnold overlays reflections, glimpses and memory with the sensations of travelling. Simon Edwards’ masterful Front Line and Firelight unites beauty and menace, finding them in the mundane technique Canterbury farmers use to clear stubble.

Garry Currin simultaneously hides and reveals the landscape in Lilburn’s Retreat as he pays homage to New Zealand’s great composer. JS Parker’s palette-knife abstractions of the Marlborough landscape build a melodic structure and tonal range that speaks of the season and place. Dick Frizzell implies the landscape by adding a horse and rider to an abstract colour field.
