New Zealands Favourite Artists
By Denis Robinson
Paperback, 2006 , 128 pages, new

New Zealand has had a short but highly innovative art history by old world standards. Artist for the past 170 years have been attracted by the bright light and clear colours of New Zealand. A series of influential artists from Europe passing on their skills in the early days, which over time has blended with the indigenous Maori and Pacific influences into a unique and refreshing style in visual art. This coupled with our isolation brings an innovative creativity to our artists' work. This book contains a mix of emerging new talent through to some of the skilled 'old masters' of New Zealand painting, showing the depth and diversity of the countr'y creative pool I visual art. Among the selections are three artists who were finalists in the Adam Portraiture Awards 2006, including its winner Otis Frizzell, a maritime artist, abstract expressionists and some popular watercolour artists of international repute. The book gives only brief biographical and current details of the artists and attempts no comment or critique of their works. From the biographies it is possible to trace how the artists' talents have developed, many having received awards or prizes and other recognition along the journey, that have stimulated their art careers. It is hoped that this book be used as an entry-level stimulus to begin collecting New Zealand art, and as a reference to some of the wide range of talent our country has to offer.
