Exhibition Text

The Review 2013 includes Ian Scott’s masterful Lattice No. 158 (1987) painting: an abstract work of profound artistic achievement. Paul Dibble is represented by Geometric Figure 1 (2008): a singular and compelling work, delivered with trademark deftness, visual literacy and precision. Darryn George – exhibiting shortly at the Venice Biennale – is featured with Rarohiko (2010) in which he explores the cultural dynamics of repeated pattern. Mike Crawford’s development as a glass artist of rare importance is demonstrated with three superb works.

Garry Currin’s This Distance (2008/09) is a great painting and also remarkably elusive with everything seemingly in a state of constant flux with changes (of tone, atmosphere and event) happening in front of the viewer’s eyes. The unforgettable Umbilical Paths of Nalo - Part II (2010) by Andy Leleisi’uao is an episodic parable on human endeavour.

Jenna Packer locates her work in the invented passages of our history and does so with such authority we believe the events happened. Neil Dawson’s Whare (2010) uses the patterns of playing cards as if relief carved. Michael Hight’s Mount Pisa (2012) is a visual poem to the unique Central Otago light and landscape.

Also exhibited are two major glass works by Ann Robinson; a key work on paper Honourable Socks (2010) and an incisive small painting by Nigel Brown. Linda Holloway’s Lemoncello (2012) combines landscape elements with abstract dialogues. Boatsheds and Mt Hobson (2012) by Justin Boroughs is iconic Auckland around the bays.

Sally Smith plays with scale, space and perception in Uplift (2012). Callum Arnold’s West Coast Junction (2008) combines the sensation of moving with the environment. There are also significant works by Bridie Henderson, Luke Jacomb, Neal Palmer and Bruce Hunt.
