Art on High

Christchurch Art Gallery's Worcester Street wall has had a change of exterior art work. Jae Hoon Lee's spectacular Himalayan mountain scene 'Annapurna' is the latest work in the gallery's excellent OUTER SPACES programme that showcases art works in specific locations away from the main interior exhibition galleries. This huge digital piece is a compilation, or rather a merging, of dozens of travel photographs that Lee took on his recent travels to Nepal. I appreciate that technology has its limits but I would have liked to have seen this work made even bigger - at least half as big again. I can't help thinking that despite the immensity of the mountains themselves, the work looks a little bit lost on the giant gallery wall.
