Today is the last day to go and see Paul Dibble’s sculpture ‘Stories of a Lost Land’ positioned in Market Square in @viaductharbour. ⁠
⁠
Paul Dibble (20 March 1943 – 5 December 2023) was a leading figure of his generation, having created a rich body of sculptural works for public and private contexts over the course of decades. Key themes in his work include native flora and fauna, cultural history, architecture, and the human figure. ‍⁠
⁠
Stories of a Lost Land is a large-scale work that featured in Huia Sings Alone, a solo presentation of the artist’s work at Gow Langsford in 2023. It presents a fresh response to subject matter that the artist knew well – native birds and the flowers of the kōwhai tree.⁠
⁠
Presented courtesy of the artist’s estate and @gowlangsford.⁠
