John Oxborough

31 July to 19 August 2018

John Oxborough’s works draw on nostalgia, the visceral feelings and memories connected to familiar places and moments and while the subjects of his work embody his personal nostalgia, they too stir these feelings within the viewer.

Throughout his practice, Oxborough alludes to the long-standing tradition of New Zealand landscape painting, creating abstract representations of landscapes, bodies of water and moments of time; ‘Baylys Beach Saturday Night’ and ‘Baylys Beach Sunday Morning’. Oxborough allows colour to create its own form and narrative within his works, a visceral representation his past and present experiences that are prevalent in his new exhibition Thread.
