Shane Cotton : the hanging sky by Justin Paton( Book )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For two decades Shane Cotton (ONZM, Ngāpuhi) has been one of New Zealand's most acclaimed painters. His works of the 1990s played a pivotal part in that decade's debates about place, belonging and bicultural identity. In the mid 2000s, however, Cotton headed in a spectacular and unexpected new direction: skywards. Employing a sombre new palette of blue and black, he painted the first in what would become a major series of skyscapes -- vast, nocturnal spaces where birds speed and plummet. The Hanging Sky brings together highlights from this period with four distinctive new responses. New York essayist Eliot Weinberger offers a poetic meditation on what he calls 'the ghosts of birds' in Cotton's paintings. Christchurch Art Gallery senior curator Justin Paton plots his own encounters with Cotton across six years in which the artist was constantly 'finding space'. Melbourne-based curator Geraldine Kirrihi Barlow confronts the haunting role of Toi moko -- tattooed Māori heads -- in the paintings and in her own past. And Institute of Modern Art Director Robert Leonard argues the case for Cotton as a cultural surrealist exploring 'the treachery of images'." -- www.craigpotton.co.nz
The critic's part : Wystan Curnow art writings 1971-2013 by Wystan Curnow( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wystan Curnow is New Zealand's longest-serving and, arguably, most important art critic. This edited collection brings together a selection of his art writings from 1971 to 2013 to provide the first comprehensive overview of his practice. Selectively drawing on his considerable ouput, the publication features Curnow's long form essays that investigate the stakes for 'high culture' in a 'small province' like New Zealand; major essays on key artists including Len Lye, Colin McCahon, Billy Apple, Stephen Bambury, Max Gimblett, and Imants Tillers; vivid reports on the contemporary art scene; catalogue essays and short reviews that offer insightful readings of art and artists in all their material and conceptual specificity. Both a map of contemporary theory and practice and a cogent agenda for thinking through the implications and challenges of making art here, this compilation is an essential companion for anyone interested in New Zealand art as it has unfolded since 1970."--Publisher's website
Mixed-up childhood by Janita Craw( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our understanding of how children develop - and what influences that development for good or ill - is elementally tempered by our childhood memories. And that's a central part of what this exhibition is saying about "the state or time of being a child". "The artists in Mixed-up childhood recall or restage their own perceptions of childhood, sometimes through the filters of history and art history, psychoanalysis, psychology or politics, and sometimes through cathartic playing-out"--Page [9]

"German artist Katharina Grosse is one of the most exciting and innovative abstract painters working today. Painting with a spray gun, Grosse works in situ, responding to a space's architecture and ambiance by working directly on the walls, floor and ceiling. Having exhibited widely through the United States and Europe, 'Picture Park' is Grosse's first major solo museum project in Australia. The artist has transformed GoMA's long gallery into an extraordinary environment that confounds conventions of museum display and challenges our expectations of painting"--Site web de la Gallerie
