Born in Invercargill in 1949, Nigel Brown grew up in Tauranga and was fortunate to have the established artist Fred Graham as an art teacher at Tauranga Boys’ College. Between 1968 and 1971 he attended Elam School of Art, gaining valuable wisdom and inspiration from teachers Robert Ellis, Pat Hanly, Colin McCahon, Garth Tapper and Greer Twiss. Brown first began exhibiting in 1972 and his Lemon Tree series (1977) helped to consolidate his position in the art scene. In 1981, he was awarded a QEII Arts Council Grant for travel to the United States, the United Kingdom and Western Europe. On his return, the impact of the Springbok tour protests, as well as a period living with fellow neo-expressionist artist Philip Clairmont that same year, had a lasting impression on Brown. A founding member of the pressure group VAANA (Visual Artists Against Nuclear Arms) in 1984, Brown’s paintings and prints of this period tackled relevant issues not only on nuclear weaponry but also on feminism and the peace movement. This culminated in his 1985 exhibition Living in the Bomb Age, at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery. Brown’s practice examines his direct and personal articulation of the realities of the human condition. He is profoundly aware of the relationship between human beings and their environment.

10 modern | contemporary ART Wednesday 27 November 2019

Symbolism such as the fern, black singlet, dog and driveway, James K. Baxter and Captain Cook, all reflect his experience, his observations and his beliefs. He has woven these into a complex web over a period of more than 40 years. In his early work he combined a tension and personal narrative centred on social issues in New Zealand topography. His later work included the socio-political world of the distinctly New South Pacific, while in his current practice, he continues to emphasise his vision of a New Zealand identity. Brown has also undertaken two significant stained glass window designs – St Mary’s Catholic Church, Auckland (1991) and Holy Trinity Cathedral, Parnell (1998). In 1998 he travelled to Antarctica as part of the inaugural ‘Artist to Antarctica’ programme. In the 2004 New Year Honours, Brown was appointed an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for services to painting and printmaking, and in 2005 Brown was awarded a three-week residency in Russia hosted by the New Zealand ambassador in Moscow.

Art for good

give the gift of clean water today

Artist Misery teams up with Oxfam for a one-off art piece to transform lives in the Pacific World-famous New Zealand wall and pop artist Misery has joined forces with Oxfam New Zealand to fundraise for Oxfam's project providing clean drinking water and sanitisation in remote areas of Papua New Guinea. Oxfam will help provide life-saving and reliable clean water for 30,000 people across 12 communities in the Eastern Highlands province in Papua New Guinea. “It’s been an honour to collaborate with Oxfam on this special project... knowing many families in the Pacific aren’t as lucky as we are, and that they don’t have access to something as vital as water is a huge motivator. I’m glad to contribute to something that could have a huge impact on the lives of people living in poverty. I have so much admiration for the important work Oxfam is doing. I was inspired to paint a dreamy underwater seascape exploring Papua New Guinea’s magnificent coral reefs and sea life. My mother spent a large part of her childhood in PNG and has incredible memories of growing up there. Boating around Lae, swimming in crocodile infested waters and playing in the jungle. Painting this piece felt extra special as I was able to imagine what it may have been like for her as a little girl. I am forever inspired by the magic of nature and I'm so proud of this collaboration and excited to see our beautiful mural debut into the world, giving people the opportunity to be part of changing others’ lives for the better.”

PROVENANCE Purchased from Michael Lett, 2007 Our meeting house in my iwi homeland has two sides and a ceiling. It’s got no carving. It’s just little. It’s not used any more, but it is abandoned only in the physical sense. This is because we know we belong to this place. We carry its spirit with us, wherever we go …. Our living marae is really our suburban family home … Michael Parekowhai Connecting the ancient art of carving with the new art of screenprinting, plastic moulding and commercial lighting, The Bosom of Abraham offers a powerful evocation of that underlying spirit.

TOSS WOOLLASTON (1910 - 98) Riwaka Wharf Oil on canvas 91 x 120 Signed & dated 1988 $30,000 - 40,000

Riwaka Wharf depicts one of the artist’s favourite views in the region that he called home. This lookout point in Motueka inspired a number of paintings and watercolours over the course of his career.   The painting has been split into horizontal thirds consisting of the foreground, harbour background, and sky. By conforming to compositional norms in this way, Woollaston has achieved balance. His use of colour demonstrates a sound mastery of light and form, as well as the influence of European plein air impressionists such as Cezanne. The scene is bathed in a brilliant, intense sunshine, which further highlights the spirited brilliance of his technique: the deep, cool blue of the sea bridges the gap between the vast cloudy sky and the dry, earthy yellow of the land. More often than not Woollaston relied on browns, reds and yellows – that is, raw, earthy tones. The brilliant application of blue, red, green and yellow gives this painting a particularly energising, crystalline clarity. This view was dear to the artist’s heart. It is a snapshot from near where he first learned to paint, having moved to Mapua to work as a fruit-picker when he was 18. From this early stage in his career, Woollaston developed a special relationship with this part of the country to which he would return time and again in his work. In 1968 (two decades before Riwaka Wharf was painted), the artist had returned there and rediscovered the joy and inspiration of these scenes, at the same time launching his career as a full-time artist.

40 ROBERT ELLIS (b. 1929) City in a Dark Red Landscape Oil on board 91.5 x 91.5 Signed & dated 1965 Inscribed City in a Dark Red Landscape, No. 5 verso $25,000 - 35,000 PROVENANCE Private Collection, Auckland Lot No. 93 Art+Object, 18/08/2011 In the 1960s, Robert Ellis began painting his celebrated Motorway series. The creation of these works involved distilling land data, aerial perspectives and topographical information into painted patterns and symbols. City in a Dark Red Landscape is an intricate work. The bright red which permeates the scene can be interpreted as lava-like; bloody; of the earth. It resembles an urgent river of brake lights, and the light pollution of a city in flux.   Through translating different impressions of perspective and landscape into a painted language, Ellis was able to compose elegant – albeit frenetic – symphonies of civilisation and infrastructure such as this one. The painting possesses a sense of both oppressive temporariness and deep-etched permanence: everything is changing, but at the same time, this cityscape feels like forever.

44 modern | contemporary ART Wednesday 27 November 2019

Knowing that Ellis spent time working as an aerial photographer in the Royal Air Force helps – it makes the work’s immense perspective more accessible. Looking through this aerial lens, we encounter the metamorphosis of a free flowing city. The clash of colour in City in a Dark Red Landscape is arresting and visceral; it seems as though the struggle between red and black is pushing against the limits of the painted medium. This feeling of evolution is intentional on the artist’s part. For Ellis, these paintings were a means of exploring ideas about universal urbanisation and city expansion. Specifically, they functioned as a commentary on the motorway development and urban transformation plans which had been underway in Auckland since the 1950s.

I/We Landscape relates to the I Am works painted at Cosy Nook, Southland. Pahia Hill features on horizon but this work relates in part to Arama Ave works of the 1970’s. I saw it as a kind of unlikely monument to I and We, two aspects of human awareness. Works such as this extend the work of McCahon back to more involvement in the human situation while reintroducing pictorial aspects abandoned by Modernist purism. A painting influenced by elements of a rough vernacular and sculptural awareness. NB

A mix of real objects and the imagination. One aspect of the isolated rural aspect I was living in at the time at Cosy Nook was to tap into a harsh mentality that was part of the New Zealand vernacular and laugh a little at it as well. Pulling your socks up was often conceived as the limited advice to those depressed, struggling or different. I’ve had a bit of fun imagining a brutal Heath Robinson machine. It may be waiting to process all of us. NB

Portraits by William Henry Allen (1894 - 1988) From the collection of the Estate of artist’s daughter Sheila

William Henry Allen ((1894-1988) was one of a group of British art teachers recruited in the 1920s by William Sanderson La Trobe, the nation’s Superintendent of Technical Education, whose intention it was to greatly improve the quality of art education in New Zealand. W H Allen had attended London’s Royal College of Art from 1919 to 1923. His contemporaries there included Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth; fellow students Roland Hopkins, Jenny Campbell and Robert Nettleton Field also immigrated to New Zealand and became lifelong friends. The contribution of the La Trobe artists, particularly W H Allen and R N Field had an on-going and profound effect on the development of New Zealand art. Their teaching of early modernism opened the door to an avant-garde post-impressionist period in New Zealand’s art history. They influenced artists such as Toss Woollaston, Colin McCahon and Doris Lusk who embraced these new ideas, attitudes and techniques. Hocken Librarian Sharon Dell says the influence of W H Allen and his fellow La Trobe teachers produced landscapes and portraits in a style that was at first deeply unacceptable to painters and art societies in New Zealand - still entrenched in their Victorian style of art. W H Allen taught in Dunedin and Nelson. He was President of the Suter Art Gallery Society, teaching Workers Education Association (WEA) classes and participating in the Canterbury Summer Schools which attracted artists Doris Lusk and Leo Bensemann to Nelson. Colin McCahon and Toss Woollaston also regularly spent their summers there. After returning to England in the late 1930s, W H Allen’s art and reputation as a teacher were all but lost and until recently, little research done on his contribution to New Zealand art. Following the family’s return to England in 1946 W H Allen taught at the South West Essex School of Art, London, retiring in 1961.

In 2008 a significant collection of W H Allen’s work was repatriated from the United Kingdom and gifted to Dunedin’s Hocken Library. The Tui Rata Frowd bequest contained about 80 artworks including oil paintings and works on paper, and a large archival collection of letters, correspondence, photographs, catalogues and articles relating to William Allen. In 2015 the Hocken Library held a major exhibition, W H Allen & The La Trobe Effect. This exhibition shone a light on W H Allen’s contribution to the emergence of early regionalism in New Zealand. In addition to showcasing W H Allen’s practice the show included works by his La Trobe peers, several of Allen’s students and a sample of work by the early twentieth century British artists associated with the Camden Town Group whose post-impressionist style and subject matter inspired W H Allen, his peers and a swathe of this country’s regionalist painters. International Art Centre thank Robyn Notman and Sharon Dell of the Hocken Library for their assistance. Sheila Allen (W H Allen’s daughter) was born in New Zealand in 1926. She lived in Dunedin until aged four, when she moved with her mother, father and sister Tui, back to England for a new role for her father. The family returned to New Zealand for a teaching role in Nelson when she was seven - leaving again at age 20. She had told the University of Otago her childhood in New Zealand was idyllic, yet she returned again to live out her years in the UK, eventually having a career as an artist herself, training to be a silversmith in her 70s. Sheila died in early 2018.

Single Owner Auctions From time to time, the secondary market is fortunate enough to be exposed to one of those rare collections which transcends the value of its individual works of art, and stands to represent something iconic in its entirety. Our team is well-versed in the process of offering single-owner collections for sale, and take pride in the process of curating a single-owner sale when the opportunity arises. We offer a targeted marketing campaign and maximise the use of both electronic and print-based collateral to effectively showcase such collections to maximum effect. The strong networks we have established locally and internationally are reflected in some of the private collections which have been entrusted to us in recent years.
