Freeman White’s landscapes are carefully observed studies of light and form which impress upon us the dramatic land forms of the Hawke's Bay area. White’s epic depictions of his local environment are powerful and emotional works which masterfully capture the enduring majesty of the land.

The land is often depicted in a state of late afternoon glow, capturing the subtle play of light and consequent shadow at the height of summer, achieving remarkable depth, luminosity and grandeur. Endless ranges bathed in sunlight are contrasted with long, deep shadows which skilfully provide a visual flow for the viewer to move through.

White’s landscapes are often intentionally sparsely populated with small clusters or even lone trees, allowing us to focus on the formation of the and muscular ranges. The trees which are depicted are often non-native, speaking of the cost at which settling into this area came and like may aspects of White’s work, explore post-colonial notions of beauty.

Complimenting the landform paintings is a powerful seascape work in which breaking waves are impressively rendered, providing visual and conceptual symmetry to the rolling hills, rugged cliff backdrops and valleys. White captures the drama and raw power of the waves effectively - a reminder of the constant pressures and influence the surrounding landscape is under.

Exhibition runs from 8th - 28th November.
Exhitbion preview 8th November 6 - 8pm.
