Millers O'Brien Gallery, 85 Victoria St, Wellington


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Millers O'Brien presents a solo exhibition of paintings by Auckland-based painter Denys Watkins.

There is a harmony to Denys Watkins’ paintings which is a result of a lifetime of experimentation with the medium, and with observations and curiosity about the world. Kryptonite is his newest body of work, and true to form is both rich in colour and ripe with the entrancing graphic shapes he has become known for.

Denys Watkins is a highly respected contemporary artist with a career spanning 5 decades. He taught as a senior lecturer at Elam School of Fine Arts from 1980¬–2011 and his work is held in several major collections throughout Australasia. He began his studies at the Wellington Polytechnic School of Design from 1962-64, and then in London at both the Central School of Art in 1967 and the Royal College of Art from 1968-70.

He has been awarded multiple scholarships throughout his career and was the recipient of the Artist in Residence programme at the Canberra School of Art in 1985, and the Sanskriti Foundation Residency in India, 2003. Recent exhibitions include a retrospective of his paintings from 2004 — 2016, Dynamo Hum, at COCA, Christchurch 2018 and Gus Fisher, Auckland 2017.
