Inspired by the New Zealand poet Honé Tuwhare, Louise McRae’s latest exhibition presents artworks named after his captivating poetry.

Louise McRae’s work represents a beautiful collision between the detritus of a rural landscape, deconstructed representation and abstract formalism.
Louise collects scrap timber upon which she paints loose land, sky and seascapes. She then splits these scenes into shards and with a keen feeling for form, space and placement re-assembles the shards into panels of varying shapes and formats.
The careful modulation of colour and surface across McRae’s panels is captivating, its effect akin to the perceptual experience of optical art. This experiential aspect is also key to uncovering the spirituality in McRae’s work and her strong connections to place.
“I’ve always broken things by accident. Now I break with purpose. Looking for space within the painting and using deconstruction as a way to create. The act of collapse can release energy to generate something new”.
