The long-established Auckland gallery OREXART (Oedipus Rex Gallery) offers the highest level of painting, sculpture and photography by established and emerging artists of note.
At the Auckland Art Fair 2011 the gallery will present Solo Across the Pacific, paintings by Tongan/New Zealand artist Glen Wolfgramm. This includes the largest single work at the Fair – a 5.5 metre long painting titled We Don’t Paddle in the Same Canoe, which presents Wolfgramm’s view of the New Zealand-Pacific landscape, the sense of place and people, of belonging and discovering, of difference and similarity.
