White Night 2016
White Night is a spellbinding night where Auckland’s art galleries, museums are open late and the streets are alive with a rich spread of arts festivities.
The concept originated in Paris as nuit blanche and has since spread to cities around the globe. It’s a night-time arts festival in which museums, private and public art galleries and other cultural institutions open, typically free of charge, and turn the city itself into a gallery for experiencing the best of contemporary art and culture.
White Night 2015 in Auckland involved around 300 artists and artist groups throughout 100 plus venues across 20 neighbourhoods over a six-hour period (6pm-midnight) spread throughout Auckland.

This year I’m involved ! I will be working at an easel outside Black Door Gallery in Parnell, on a drawing – pencil with varnish-wash on stretched canvas of historic Parnell.
A great opportunity for you to come and ‘meet the artist.’
The large canvas-size of this drawing gives its historic content a contemporary presence within the minimalist architecture of our homes and workplaces . . . an expression of past and present – contemplation and intrigue.

My present series of paintings is titled Shelf-life – arrangements of artefacts, general objects and found-specimens of nature . . . arranged on mantelpieces as compositions of cultural, social, historic associations and contrasts of difference.
