Freeman White’s landscapes, and more recent seascapes, reference a history of art making while contributing to a wider contemporary movement. Nature becomes a politically and emotionally charged, a beautifully fraught muse.

While White is inspired by Aotearoa’s long landscape history, his subject matter is very much contemporary, an account of New Zealand’s current environmental climate. His painting acts as an accurate documentation and contemporary record of both the beauty of Aotearoa and the current impact of civilization on our land; a purposeful juxtaposition to the often romantic and idealized versions of New Zealand depicted throughout art history.

 

Exhibition opens 5:30—7:30pm Tuesday 22 October 2019
