Opening Sunday February 12th at 3 for 3.30 pm – Guest speaker C.K. Stead. Exhibition preview and poetry book launch in association with Auckland University Press

In May last year O’Brien and eight fellow artists were invited by PEW Environment Group to visit the Kermadecs; an area National Geographic describes as “one of the last pristine sites in our oceans”. The experience resonated with O’Brien and the results can be seen in this stunning new suite of paintings and works on paper. These will be accompanied by a suite of original drawings, which feature, alongside O’Brien’s poems, in his new collection. A number of other recent drawings, paintings and etchings of a littoral nature will also be on show.
