19 July - 26 July - Lightspace

Secrets of the Artists is a new book by artist member Dr Romuald Rudzki which is having its global launch at the Academy, with an accompanying exhibition from Wednesday 19thto Wednesday 26th July 2017, between the hours of 10.00am and 5.00pm in our Lightspace Gallery.
The exhibition is of works within the book including several in the new Prealist style where the artist moves into a state of kenosis (removal of the will), in order to explore the potential of the pigment, the surface, the method of application and other factors, to produce work which is impossible to achieve by any other method.
Rom is planning to be present throughout the exhibition and looks forward to answering questions about the book, as well as Prealism as a new way of painting and as a uniquely New Zealand art movement.
Secrets of the Artists is priced at $30 and will be on sale in the Academy Shop. The book will appeal to practising artists, art students, art teachers and the general public.
