Event details

Gordon Walters is one of New Zealand's most important modernist painters. Across six decades he explored the potential of a few simple geometric elements with a singular focus, creating works of exactitude and refinement.

Gordon Walters: New Vision is the first comprehensive survey of the artist's complete body of work, and draws on paintings from major public and private collections across New Zealand.

The exhibition provides an in-depth look into the history of Walters' development, and reveals the different art forms which fuelled his vision and inspired the creation of his own unique visual language. The original black and white koru paintings of the 1960s are brought back together for the first time and are shown alongside never-before-seen paintings, studies and notebooks.
