New works on show 147 Cuba Street

Thu, 10 Jun 2004

Max Gimblett Paintings and drawings Bartley Nees Gallery, 147 Cuba Street, Wellington June 12 - 21, 2004

Max Gimblett will be in the gallery on Saturday 12 June from 11 am - 2pm for the opening of his first exhibition in Wellington in several years. We would be delighted if you could come and view the work and meet the artist.

Described as one of New Zealand's "most internationally prominent and successful artists" Gimblett, who has lived in New York since 1972, is returning to New Zealand for the opening of a major survey show of his work at Auckland Art Gallery next week. A publication on his work is also being launched by the gallery. This exhibition will travel to City Gallery Wellington in December.

Gimblett's paintings which are at at once seductive and austere, move from flat matte canvases to to gilded and luminescent surfaces through a range of sizes. They break out of the conventional rectangular frame with many employing circular, oval or the Gimblett trademark quatrefoil support. An example of a quatrefoil work 'Caesar', 2004 is attached.

More information on Max Gimblett is available on our website: www.bartleyneesgallery.co.nz under "artists".

Mary-Louise Browne "If you told me..." Bartley Nees Gallery, 147 Cuba Street, Wellington Until June 19 2004

Mary-Louise Browne's exhibition continues the investigation of words and texts from movie scripts first seen in her solo exhibition 'Out of Character' at City Gallery Wellington in 2000. Words are Mary-Louise's medium - whether on granite, ceramic, metal, or canvas, she explores the visual representation of language. With these new works - works on paper emblazoned with text - she examines the power of words in conversation and communication and makes explicit the role of the viewer in Œreading¹ and seeing an artwork. Who is speaking to us? Do the works stand in for the character? Are they a kind of portrait? Or is it just the ideas and the inevitable reflection on the nature of visual communication that is important?
