Coming up

Our next show by Martin Basher, runs from 6 October to 4 November 2017. First presented as a one-week exhibition at the University of Auckland’s George Fraser Gallery to mark the end of his doctoral studies, this sculptural installation follows Hawaiian Tropic at Starkwhite (1-26 August 2017) where the artist presented a new series of landscape-based paintings revealing the formal genesis of the ultra-saturated, hard-edge abstractions for which he is best known. The two exhibitions situate Basher’s painting and sculptural work in the lineage of display-based artistic practices.
