Opening Tuesday May 15, from 5pm
Gow Langsford, Auckland
Following the success of Gow Langsford’s recent presentation at Art Basel Hong Kong, this exhibition brings together paintings from several of McCahon’s most formative stages and will reflect the significance of a home-grown artist, whose stature in Australasia can only be compared to the influence that artists such as Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell and Mark Rothko had on American art. Spanning two decades of his career – from 1958 to 1977 – the show documents the scope of the artist’s evolving concerns: the relationship between Maori and the New Zealand landscape, as well as the influence of early settlers and their beliefs on this revered land.
Coinciding with this exhibition, Gow Langsford Gallery has published an accompanying illustrated catalogue.
