Richard Lewer: Misadventures

September 20 - October 1

Misadventures is an ongoing series of drawings revisiting some of New Zealand’s grimmer news stories and moments in history.

The majority of these pen drawings were made at the same time as Richard Lewer’s painting series NZDisasters (2020), which is held in the Auckland Art Gallery collection. Like the subject of true crime itself, this series is an ongoing thread through Lewer’s practice, unfolding as events take place.

What Lewer finds most interesting is the residue catastrophic events imprint on our sublime landscapes as much as our people. He also has a fascination with the often imprecise and malleable nature of human memory. The pen drawings describe events in hard, clear documented recollection, while the charcoal implies a more blurred focus.
