Gow Langsford Gallery is proud to present a series of solo exhibitions from three of our represented artists at the 2018 Auckland Art Fair. The exhibitions will be unveiled throughout the duration of the Fair: Dale Frank (Wednesday 23rd -Thursday 24th), Hugo Koha Lindsay (Friday 25th) and John Pule (Saturday 26th – Sunday 27th).
Dale Frank’s name is synonymous with contemporary art in Australasia. With paintings selected specifically for the Auckland Art Fair, this body of new work demonstrates the versatile, playful and innovative nature that Dale Frank's practise has come to be known for. Predominately labelled a painter, Frank’s work traverses into the realms of sculpture, as he continues to push his medium to the very limit. Unconventional materials such as multi-coloured wigs, compression foam, coloured varnish, Swarovski crystals and glitter are utilised to create complex pieces that are striking and utterly unique. Further works by Dale Frank can be viewed at the Britomart Project Space, 26-28 Customs St East over the duration of the Fair.
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.
As a writer, poet, printmaker and painter, John Pule weaves into his works a narrative rich in culture, specifically inspired by his birthplace, Niue and the greater Pacific region. The twelve works presented at this year’s Fair are small-scale paintings that depict quiet moments filled with hope, serenity and love amongst surrealist landscapes in hues of blues and greens.
