Muse Gallery, Hawkes Bay
From Pencarrow to Waimarama, is the closing chapter of a story that began over 40 years ago, when as a young man, Richard Adams walked solo from Pencarrow to Waimarama. The three-and-a-half-week trek along the East Coast was both a physical and spiritual journey. Turning 60 last year prompted Adams to revisit the experience in the form of two residencies, one in Wellington and the other here in Hawkes Bay at Waimarama. This exhibition is a culmination of work that was created during these residencies.
In the Autumn issue of Art New Zealand, Don Abbott describes Adam’s paintings as “…an exploration and exposition of colour, tone and light which takes its inspiration from events and experiences that the artist has seen in the world around him…” in this case, the East Coast, from Pencarrow to Waimarama.
