Opening on Tuesday 12 September, Three Part Harmony, explores the interplay between light, texture and the evolution of form in the work of JS Parker, Bronwynne Cornish & Bridget Bidwill.

JS Parker (1944 — 14 August 2017):
Highly regarded by collectors, nationally and internationally, JS Parker is best known for his large impasto paintings within a grid format. His works are full of texture, rhythm and balance within his imposed framework. Parker worked in thick layers of paint applied with a palette knife – sweeps of paint, which he pared back to reveal hints of what lies beneath.

Bronwynne Cornish:
Bronwynne Cornish is one of New Zealand’s best known makers of sculptural ceramics over a career which spans some 40 years. Her work is exhibited throughout the country and she has had major shows in all the main museums and galleries, including a particularly enduring relationship with the Auckland Art Gallery.

Since beginning to work with clay in 1968, she has developed a practice which is largely sculptural, including many installations and large works. Her central themes reflect a strong interest in place, ritual and mythology. Her current series of works is both a tribute and a response to the achievements of Frances Hodgkins.

Bridget Bidwill:
Bridget Bidwill’s understated palette, sometimes with fields of colour hinting at the natural world, was initially influenced by her years spent in the Renaissance cities of Europe. Subtle tonalities evoke atmosphere and space, enhanced by the depths of the pastel or the transparency of the oil stick.

Reference to Still-Life and more recently landscape remain evident even in her most abstract works. Her paintings create an aura which seems foreign yet familiar – where glimpses of the abstract and the real world converge.
