Waikato Museum

Curated by Helen Kedgley, this exhibition consists of a series of bold, stylised portraits of well-known, recognisable New Zealand art world personalities Wayne Youle admires - from Ralph Hotere to Rita Angus to Philip Clairmont.

For some years now, Youle has been investigating the relationship between the current generation of New Zealand artists and the heroic modernists, highlighting the cross-connections between them. In his current series of portraits, he pays homage to the way artists connect across time in an ongoing visual conversation.

He paints portraits of artists, both historical and contemporary, who have influenced his practice in some way - writers, poets, musicians and visual artists who have shaped our culture.
