Installation at Booth D3

New works by Hugo Koha Lindsay have been installed at our Auckland Art Fair Booth D3 open today from 11am-5pm, and then 5-9pm for the Art Party (tickets available online here, or at the door).

Emerging artist, Hugo Koha Lindsay joined Gow Langsford's stable of artists in 2017. His most recent exhibition, But will it float, furthered his exploration and ongoing interest in the urban environment and the emotional and behavioural effects these landscapes have on us. Continuing on from this exhibition, seven new paintings will be exhibited at the Auckland Art Fair. Loosely described as monoprints, each work is produced using techniques that engage with the architectural space of the artist's studio. 

Contact us for further details on these works, or visit Booth D3 today to learn more.

Gow Langsford Gallery welcomes Hugo Koha Lindsay into its stable of artists. Lindsay’s abstract surfaces take reference from their surroundings and from the process of painting. Creases are captured in the process of the canvas being stretched, rubbings are made and marks mirrored from his studio walls and floor. Lindsay’s work often reflects the structure of the ubiquitous digital screen, where space is constructed in layers that acknowledge tabs or windows. His practice considers the greater complexities of today’s relationship between the digital and the physical, which continues to shift with the progression of digital culture.

Lindsay has been the recipient of numerous recent awards including the Molly Morpeth Canaday Painting and Drawing Award, 2016; the Kaipara Wallace Arts Trust Award, 2015; the Parkin Drawing Prize Merit Award, 2015; the Walker and Hall, Zinni Douglas Merit Award, 2014; and the Francis Erwin Hunt Scholarship, 2011.
