      • 15 Jun 2009
      • Texture
      • I recall the first time I spotted the haunting portraits of Wellington-based artist, Brad Williams / Slope. It was a couple of years ago at the opening of an Affordable Art Show and they were causing quite the fuss. Since then I have noticed his distinctive works adorning the walls of many Wellington galleries, cafes and bars. So I was uber-stoked when I learnt he was exhibiting at Manky Chops this month.

      • We’ve carefully deinstalled the precious Monets and others – they’re already back in Boston… The Visa Platinum Gallery on Level 4 here at Te Papa is pretty much empty. So this little chair waits… what’s going in there? Nine beautiful, sexy Formula One cars - along with a whole lot of other amazing objects and stories.

He very recently showed at New York’s Guggenheim Museum and became the first New Zealand born painter to do so. Albeit, a naturalised American now, the Auckland-born Gimblett is back in New Zealand to open ‘white stone clear water’ tomorrow at the Page Blackie gallery here in Wellington.

      • The spread of swine flu around the world has been dominating the media lately. Hopefully it won’t turn into a pandemic like the one that swept through New Zealand in late 1918.

      • Black nightshade has been in the news recently, after its berries turned up masquerading as peas in packs of frozen vegetables. Without wanting to be seen to cast aspersions on your aptitude for gardening, there is a good chance black nightshade is in your garden. Black nightshade is a small plant (less than 75 cm tall) that is [...]

      • Te Papa has a strong collection of Colin McCahon’s early religious works, including three paintings from 1947 that depict events from story of the Passion: Christ taken from the cross, Entombment (after Titian), and King of the Jews. One of the enduring myths surrounding McCahon’s early paintings is that were rejected by critics. This is summed [...]

Although the frond is small and lacking the diagnostic reproductive characters, I think it is the introduced holly fern (Cyrtomium falcatum). It looks like the shining spleenwort (Asplenium oblongifolium), but the flanges, or ‘teeth’, of the [...]
