  • Free Admission



Earlier in 2012 Graham travelled to Korea as artist in residence with the ISF 2012 programme. While there he made and exhibited Tipping Point, a 3.6 metre work at the Hangaram Art Museum in Seoul. Building on this experience Graham is planning to create a spectacular suspended work over the forecourt at Whitespace as part of his exhibition; Heavy Shadows.

The rest of the show comprises of a mixture of interior and exterior works all based in the patterns and place of Aotearoa New Zealand - but with a universality that resonates internationally and cross culturally. His work derives from a knowledge of history and humankind, an emotive bond between identity and place and an enquiring mind that is alert to questions of connection. Painstaking examination of detail and an awareness of the broader framework, coupled with an eye that is tuned to pattern and shape. These qualities can be seen in the environmentally responsive works, moving with the wind or casting dramatic shadows to create yet another trajectory.

Graham's public sculpture Reasons for Voyaging grace the foreground of the Christchurch Art Gallery, Sea/Sky Kaipara was commissioned for the Gibbs Farm in 1994, Kurashiki City in Japan commissioned a major work in 2003, to name but a few of the major public works from his outstanding international career, alongside many years of public and private exhibitions in New Zealand. Heavy Shadows coincides with the ISC Sculpture Conference in Auckland.
