  WHITE NIGHT - James King  -  ARTIST TALK              in association with Toi Ora Gallery and ArtExplore

Following a successful WHITE NIGHT opening Toi Ora Gallery extends the  ……  “and then there was light”  exhibition of paintings by James King and are pleased to announce an evening Artist Talk with our ArtExplore partners. This will be an informative evening to hear from this enigmatic Outsider Artist, view his art and gain a deeper understanding into these intriguing works spanning from 2010 to 2015. You will also gain a broader perspective of the outsider art world both here in Aotearoa and internationally, hear about the Toi Ora studio programme, and be entertained by local musicians.

“I started painting large scale abstract work after a series of long term admissions to acute mental health wards in Auckland and Wellington - they  reflect on darker times; in contrast the recent smaller hessian works are  lighter – outward looking and speak of man and nature and the impact they have on each other. “

James King: Tainui – Ngati Mahuta, Tuwharetoa.

Artists Talk – Wednesday 20th April. 6.30pm for 7- 8.30pm. Koha.

Exhibition extended to Wednesday 4th May 2016
