Chart Aotearoa is an exhibition of recent paintings and bamboo engravings that celebrate some of Stanley’s favourite places in New Zealand. These works are a very personal expression of his experience and memory of these rugged places.
More than simply a depiction of place and topography, Stanley’s landscapes attempt to touch something far deeper. Through his work he asserts the potency of the New Zealand landscape as a metaphor for ourselves, allowing it to ‘reflect our own experiences and perceptions, as well as the inherent fragility and isolation of living in a country surrounded by a vast ocean’. (Isabel Haarhaus, The North Shore Years, 2004)
