SCENES OF THE SOUTH | Phil Hanson
Hanson is a masterful oil painter, who documents light on the landscape in a way that is distinctly Aotearoa.
His recent works approach light in different ways. Off the beaten track depicts a small mountain tarn off the Hooker Valley Track near Mt Cook. Hanson captures a perfect reflection of the alps and clear blue skies in the tarn.
Puponga Wharf depicts a derelict wharf near Farewell Spit. Hanson captures the remains of a wharf that once carried a coal train to waiting boats. Dramatic late afternoon light enhances the sense of history in the scene.

WHISPER & SHOUT
The Big & Small Group Show
‘Whisper and Shout’ invites the viewer to explore the idea of volume in art. See how contemporary New Zealand artists turn up or down the volume of their ideas through scale.
Artists across a range of mediums will present artwork of two different sizes- both large and small. These pairings will show how an artist’s playfulness with scale creates unique perspectives on the underlying concept.
‘Whisper and Shout’ will present top New Zealand artists in the disciplines of painting, sculpture and glass art.

Recent Works by Ben Young
Acclaimed glass sculptor Ben Young will present a body of new work titled 'Little Worlds'.
Little Worlds will explore the vastness of nature, in particular the ocean. Through glass, concrete and steel Young will evoke the awe-inspiring experience of contemplating the vastness of nature.
To stand on a cliff face feeling the wind, or to sit quietly in a small boat with water lapping at your side – these personal experiences are immortalised and personified in Young’s work.
