Dreams of Children
Lorne St
8 August - 1 September 2012
Preview: Tuesday 7 August, 5 - 7pm

Artist Michael Hight is well-known for his on-going exploration of beehives and the sun-drenched New Zealand landscape. In contrast, his new series is largely autobiographical and is drawn from memories of growing up in Taranaki in the 60s and 70s. These paintings have a sense of the theatrical and with their dreamscape settings a nocturnal quality, which could be seen as an antithesis to Hight’s earlier beehive works. Both beautiful and curiously haunting, Hight has said of his new collection ‘I am interested in the way objects, places and events reassemble themselves through memory.’
