15 August - 2 September 2017

John Madden translates the raw drama of the coastal landscape without contrivance: he matches the land’s ruggedness with his own rigorous approach. According to author, Christopher Johnstone in Landscape Paintings of New Zealand, Madden’s works possess a “brooding, emotive character which typifies his very personal and painterly response to a land he never tires of painting.”

Dominated by the Pararaha Ranges, the west coast of the Waitakeres is where Madden has tramped, explored, studied, and painted for many years.

OREXART presents West, a further exploration of his surroundings in a show of new paintings.
