Whangarei Art Museum, , Northland

The Whangarei Art Museum presents Rudolf Boelee's 'Exiles' on display from 14 December 2009 – 7 February 2010.

Exiles is a series of 7 striking portrait paintings of figures from that Great Depression Era generation of New Zealanders, described as ‘the cream of their generation’ - pathfinders and cultural explorers who went where few Kiwis had been before.

Arresting and confrontational these acrylic on hessian paintings depict images of New Zealand men and women whose individualism and idealism sometimes put them on the fringes of their own culture.

They have been selected by the artist as homage to their ability to see beyond boundaries and the confines of their homeland.

The exhibition is timed to coincide with 3 other concurrently themed exile exhibitions: - Ey! Iran developed by the Gold Coast City Art Gallery and Bah’ai Martyrs of Iran – Shahriar Asdollah-zadeh and Duality of Exile – Fred Uhlman in Captivity curated by Scott Pothan
