Important Paintings & Contemporary Art

6:00PM 3 Abbey Street, Newton, Auckland

Art+Object is pleased to present a high-quality auction catalogue of Important Paintings & Contemporary Art, which is now available to browse online.

This catalogue features several highlights and is headlined by two particularly important New Zealand paintings: Don Binney’s spectacular Heron’s Departure, New Spring, Te Henga, a painting which does much to encapsulate the artist’s love of Auckland’s rugged west coast and our unique native flora and fauna; and Colin McCahon’s Monuments to Te Whiti and to Te Ua: Prophets (1972), an historically significant bi-cultural work which the artist himself referred to as representing “… Some of my best work in years.”

Further major works include Michael Parekōwhai’s Kapa Haka (Officer Taumaha) which is the example from the artist’s 54th Venice Biennale exhibition, two mid-1990s 'Bird' paintings by Bill Hammond, major sculptures by Paul Dibble, Terry Stringer, Dave McCracken and Greer Twiss, several major paintings representing Milan Mrkusich’s iconic series of 'Corner' paintings, and significant contemporary works by Judy Millar, Fiona Pardington, Kushana Bush, John Reynolds, Tony de Lautour, Liz Maw, as well as a strong selection of international prints by Banksy, Yayoi Kusama, Christo, and Terry Frost.

Please join us to preview the catalogue on Wednesday 3rd August from 5.00 pm - 7.00 pm. The artworks will then be on view at Art+Object every day until the auction on the 9th of August at 6:00 pm.

The auction will be conducted live in our Newton saleroom with online bidding available via our online bidding platform or app.

As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about the artworks and the auction.
