Thursday 13th September-Monday 15th October 2018
The title of this show, THE L WORD, was used to highlight the complex mix of derogation and affection that the arts sector has with the subject-matter of ‘Landscape’. In much the same way as photography is inundated with 'amateur experts', the arts industry has been flooded by 'landscape painters', filling the genre with artworks that range from the mediocre to the sublime.
In THE L WORD, a diverse group of artists have taken aspects of landscape as their starting point and infused it with their own brands of abstraction, politics, form and fashion. The show doesn’t try to turn landscape on its head (well, Natchez Hudson might!) but rather presents several examples of just how indefinable ‘landscape’ has become.
THE L WORD features new work by a highly respected group of artists, including Jason Hale Tillman, Bruce Stilwell, Dean Raybould, Lynn Price, Clarry Neame, Natchez Hudson (Wellington), Nicholas Duval-Smith, David Carson, Tania Bostock, Juliet Best (Wellington), Caroline Bellamy and introducing Jamie Adamson (Auckland).
The exhibition is open from Thursday 13th September to Monday 15th October. Many of our exhibiting artists will be at the opening, so please come along to meet them. All welcome!
