'The Figurative Collective' Group Exhibition

4 Hastings St, Napier

The Figurative Collective
8 March - 16 April, 2024

New and selected works by Gary Waldrom, Andy Leleisi’uao, Delicia Sampero, and Richard Boyd-Dunlop.
Opening Friday 8 March, 5-7pm

The Figurative Collective could be considered a group of painting activists with mutual respect for each other’s work, exploring ways of sharing their raison d'être.

These artists with different perceptions, sensibilities and interpretations have developed distinctive visual languages over many years of their work. Four culturally diverse artists portray the human form and face in ways which are deeply connected, but not confined to their own experience and heritage. Their creations refer to aspects of the human condition rather than expressing personal narratives.

As they report on how they see the world the artists raise questions through their works. Exploring crises, controversy, and extremes whilst simultaneously exploring beauty, magic, and wonder. The large scale visually captivating creations will invite audiences to connect with the artwork on a deeper level prompting introspection and dialogue. Responses to the work may be beautiful, disturbing, terrible, mystical, transcendental, humorous and fantastical.
