Published to accompany the large-scale survey of the same name, which is now on display at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery and which travels to Auckland Art Gallery in July 2018, the book charts new art historical territory and provides the most complete view of Gordon Walters’ life work to date.
Gordon Walters was one of New Zealand’s foremost abstract painters. His legacy in New Zealand art and design is considered by many to be unparalleled. Over a career spanning 50 years he produced artwork of great refinement and exactitude. Although best known for his mesmerising koru paintings, Walters’ oeuvre is a much wider collection of connected bodies of work. Gordon Walters: New Vision provides readers with a complete story of this influential New Zealand artist’s evolution during a dynamic period in New Zealand culture and art history.
