Reuben Paterson (b. 1973 Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau, Ngati Rangitihi, Ngāi Tūhoe, Tūhourangi) harnesses the mesmerizing properties of light. Paterson is renowned for his inimitable, iridescent paintings, made through a distinctive application of glitter on canvas. These paintings encompass all manner of subject matter – from cloudscapes to wild cats, botanical blooms, kōwhaiwhai, and exploding fireworks – each providing a source of exploration, contemplation, and self-reflection for both artist and viewer.

Paterson’s sculptural work similarly engages with the dynamic subtleties of light, with his recent ‘Guide Kaiārahi’ (2021) at Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki drawing upon Māori cosmology and creation narratives in the form of a 10-metre-high waka made from 611 iridescent crystals.

Paterson invited independent curator and writer Dina Jezdic to produce a written response to accompany his latest exhibition. Cream brings together a series of paintings featuring kōwhaiwhai and wild cats, with the title playing upon a number of reference points and sensual innuendo.

Opening event: Thursday 6 October.
