2ND LOOK

March 18 - April 9, 2016

 

Jonathan Smart Gallery is delighted to present four key works by Neil Dawson from the early 80’s. To be offered a “2nd Look”, is to see just how fresh these things look reprised and re-presented 35 years on.

Similarly, the URL below to Peter Leech’s text from Art New Zealand 25 (Summer 1982) “Elusive Objects – Recent Work by Neil Dawson” is well worth re-visiting. Befitting the work, it is a beautifully considered piece of writing.
