My recent joint exhibition at nkb gallery with Freeman White, ‘New Work’, has been reviewed by John Hurrell on the website EyeContact. The site was set up to encourage art reviews and critical discussion and is widely regarded as New Zealand’s leading critical review forum.
Opening on 8th September is an exhibition of new paintings at nkb gallery.
The show is a joint show with Freeman White and runs for three weeks.
The opening of ‘The Summer Show’ at nkb gallery went off well with lots of people attending. Thanks to Sait Akkirman who has posted his photos on Artsdiary.
The show is open until xmas eve so there is time to get along and see it.
Thanks to James Brown and Ngaire at nkb gallery for curating and setting up a great looking show.
The Summer Show at nkb gallery in Mount Eden will open on 3rd December 2015. It runs until 24th December. It is a group show featuring new work from nine artists.
The Summer Show
The 2015 Wallace Arts Trust Awards exhibition is on at the Pah Homestead until Sunday 18th October. My painting ‘Lime Spatula Head’ is one of the finalists showing in the Salon de Refuses in the Long Gallery.
An article in the New Zealand Herald by T.J. McNamara comments on ‘New Work’ – Matthew Carter and Ramon Robertson:
“A very different Auckland is the subject of work by Matthew Carter at Nkb Gallery in Mt Eden. His Auckland is concrete and angular. Everything is on an unsettling tilt. He adds semi-abstract paintings of the electronic gear as part of city life.
More radically than Baloghy, he searches for tension. A painting of a besuited skateboarder zipping down a highway that zooms into The Cloud is full of movement. In Step he shows a city where it is perilous to step off the pavement. He also suggests another presence, both historic and spiritual, by incorporating carved figures at odds with the urban environment.”
Thanks to all those who came to the opening on Thursday night and thanks to Ngaire and James Brown for planning what was an enjoyable and successful evening.
After things had quietened down my son took a few shots. More and better photos will appear later on Sait Akkirmans Artsdiary
