VISIT... FREEDOM AND STRUCTURE: CUBISM AND NEW ZEALAND ART AT THE AUCKLAND ART GALLERY
31 Jul 15
Every time I go to the Auckland Art Gallery I have a sense of calm. I don't know what it is, maybe it’s the high ceiling or the soft natural light, or maybe it’s the hushed whispers and quiet contemplation.
I’m especially excited about the Cubism Exhibition showing right now. Colin McCahon’s French Bay and its dream like palette has always been a piece I’ve admired.
So naturally, when the Auckland Art Gallery approached me to create a print to tie in with the exhibition Freedom and Structure; Cubism and New Zealand Art 1930 – 1960, I was extremely excited about the project.
The design was an adaptation of our New York Night’s cubic print in a colour palette resembling the colours I love so much in McCahon’s French Bay.
The silk has been printed and made into cushion covers that are available exclusively through the Auckland Art Gallery Gift shop and www.juliettehogan.com.
