John Blackburn - In Absentia
John Blackburn's exhibition 'In Absentia' is his sixth
solo show at ARTIS and runs until 16th March.
Blackburn resides in the UK and exhibits at Osborne
Samuel Gallery in London.
ARTIS Gallery has been operating as a dealer gallery
in Auckland, New Zealand since 1984. Contemporary
exhibitions are held regularly from a diverse range of
leading New Zealand artists.
The BASEMENT Gallery is situated beneath ARTIS Gallery.
In this new expansive area, large sculptural works and
paintings are exhibited on a permanent basis.

These works demand contemplation in order to extract
meaning from what has been conjured up on canvas.
"Apart from everything else that happens in the course
of the creative process, a little magic is needed also."
