Opening Tuesday April 4, 2017 at 5-7pm
Gow Langsford Gallery Lorne Street, Auckland
Michael Hight returns to Gow Langsford Gallery with a solo exhibition of paintings that revisit the subject for which he is most well-known: landscapes, both familiar and transcendental, that are populated with beehives. The inspiration for these new works is drawn from the New Zealand landscape; they are familiar and quintessentially ‘New Zealand’. From the sparse fields of autumnal grasses to clear blue skies set against a backdrop of jagged mountains, these new paintings are set in landscapes as diverse as Mount Ruapehu and the surrounding tundra, to the ranges of Central Otago.
