Eleven nationally significant artists are represented in the Works on Paper exhibition. It features screenprints and lithographic editions, as well as the deft and beautiful watercolours of Simon Edwards; the remarkable pastel studies and drawings of Gary Waldrom; the optical effects and collagic process of Toni Mackinnon; the surreal sensuality of Paul Martinson.
Stanley Palmer and Dick Frizzell are acknowledged as great New Zealand artists and works on paper have been a key component of their artistic endeavours. Ralph Hotere similarly has produced a critically acclaimed and extended body of paper works throughout his career which has its own criteria as well as a fundamental dialogue back and forth with his paintings.
Reuben Paterson astonishing screenprints, Karl Maughan’s complex Colyton and Neal Palmer’s Woven Path are also included.
