Groundworks: Bill Culbert
Bill Culberts: Groundworks exhibition was presented at the Govett-Brewster in March 2008.
Fifty years ago Culbert moved from New Zealand to London to study painting, a decade later his investigations brought him to the manipulation of light and shadow – in natural and electrical form – as a restrained and potent language of discovery and metamorphosis. Groundworks is conceived in dialogue with the artist’s Lightworks exhibition presented at the Gallery a decade ago. Groundworks also premieres three new works for New Zealand audiences, two of which have been created especially for the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery.
This publication includes essays from Rhana Devenport, Ruth Harvey and Ian Wedde.
