New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Wellington
The portraits in Feeling Blue feature blue in its expansive variety. Blue collars and blue scarves, blue skies and blue seas, a blue nose from the chill, the steely gaze of a career-defining blue, blue blood wrapped in a cobalt dress, a diamond’s icy facets, blue armchairs and blue walls, the blue mood of missing a husband at sea, music — painstakingly, heart wrenchingly blue.
This exhibition in the Deane Gallery features paintings from the New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s collection united by their blue consciousness. The New Zealand Portrait Gallery permanent and loan collection and the Deane Gallery are supported by Sir Roderick and Gillian, Lady Deane.
