A High Art Note

It’s been an arts oriented week and I’m going to finish on a high note – Colin McCahon, one of New Zealand’s most significant artists. A touring exhibition of his works from the National Gallery of Australia’s collection is now showing at Christchurch Art Gallery. The exhibition includes the now-famous work “Victory over death 2,” 1970, which was given to the people of Australia by the New Zealand Government in 1978. I loved the simplicity of these exhibition graphics against the stark gallery wall outside the actual exhibition.
