Gary Waldrom is one of the truly unique figures of contemporary NZ art. His works present a fascinating parade of the human condition and build illusive events which establish narratives spanning generations, time and place. Part-fact, part-fiction, Waldrom locates his work in the chasms of dreams, in the travails of isolation and the absurdities of personality. His work commences with the premise of a small vaudevillian travelling show that has come into southern Hawkes Bay and never left.

Waldrom is an intuitive painter and his unique style has evolved to such an extent that he uses numerous painting and drawing techniques side by side. In every work he places the representational alongside abstraction. The marks and processes of the paintings evolution are likewise on display.

Each painting has a profound psychological impact. The works are theatrical and moody with the roles of metaphor and symbol adding to the surreal contrasts and dialogues. Each figure possesses an endlessly questioning gaze. Everything is both familiar and strange. There are relationships to be unravelled, events in process to be comprehended.
