Gordon Walters: New Vision is a major survey of one of New Zealand’s great modernist artists. Walters’ abstraction was centred on a deceptively simple geometric language, and the infinite potential to be found in a limited range of forms. New Vision asserts the importance of Walters’ works from the 1950s, and connects this body of small and colourful paintings with some of his best-known works of the subsequent decades. Two years in the making, and including more than 150 works, this exhibition presents a unique opportunity to explore all aspects of Walters’ remarkable art practice for the first time.
Gordon Walters: New Vision is a partnership project between the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki with support from the Walters estate.
