Exhibition Text

The 2014 Spring Catalogue exhibition features a major new work by Terry Stringer (Rita Paints Herself as a Goddess) which he delivers in his wondrous trademark manner a three-dimensional portrait of Rita Angus.

Included are significant works by Ralph Hotere, Bill Sutton and Brent Wong.

There are new glass works by Layla Walter and Galia Amsel plus a rare, exquisite stained glass Bride and Groom 1 by Pat Hanly.

Reuben Paterson (who has just returned from a residency in Korea) includes The Nebula Cat’s Eye NGC6543 which achieves remarkable (figurative) beauty and breath-taking optical contrasts. Mervyn Williams, the subject of a major book just published, is represented with an illusionary masterpiece Following Blue. Mark Mitchell also plays with illusion and surface paradox in the compelling ceramic bowl titled Force.

Elizabeth Rees provides a foretaste in Dramatic Pause of what is to be seen in her forthcoming October exhibition, as does Luke Jacomb (exhibiting in November) with two blown glass wall-mounted paddles.

Michael Hight’s stylistic and narrative virtuosity is demonstrated in the surreal, metaphoric Waingongoro River. The evocative dream-world of Gary Waldrom (Girl and Horse I) also forges stark symbolic contrasts and similarly poses unanswered questions.

Andy Leleisi’uao’s development of a singular visual language that builds parables of human endeavour is evidenced in the considerable, powerful, episodic Umbilical Paths of Nalo.

Included are key works by Neil Dawson, Ann Robinson, Karl Maughan, Garry Currin, Emily Siddell, Lorraine Rastorfer and Nigel Brown as well as new portraits from Charlotte Handy and a visual tale by Marc Blake.
