Lois McIvor at the Remuera Gallery

Lois McIvor, Making the World Look New, at the Remuera Gallery

Lois McIvor unveils a body of new work, along with a retrospective of previously unseen paintings. 

The exhibition will run from 20 June- 5 July 2013, with an opening function Saturday 29 June at 3pm

Born in New Zealand in 1930, Lois McIvor studied at Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland; and later under the tutelage of Colin McCahon - who became her dear friend and mentor. Predominantly a landscape painter, she was a founding member of the Association of Women Artists and has a seminal place in New Zealand's art history. We are proud to present Lois McIvor at the Remuera Gallery.

Artist  Statement:
The area that I am living in now is called Hillcrest, sheltered from the more busy regions of the North Shore. It is surrounded by trees and takahi groups that come up from the sides of the valley. When I first became interested in this area, I read a newspaper article about a group of people who were planting trees around their homes and throughout the community. Over the years many of these people have moved on, but the trees are here still; and at night the skies are lovely. My latest paintings depict these surroundings, making the world look new.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
