Model with the Sculptor’s Hands
18 October – 13 November 2016
Terry Stringer is a leading New Zealand sculptor and a key figure in the history of art in New Zealand. He graduated in 1967 with Honours from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland and in the following years received virtually every significant scholarship and award available to New Zealand artists. In 2003 Stringer was awarded the Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) for services to sculpture.
Model with the Sculptor’s Hands is an exhibition of bronzes which reflect Stringer’s long practice of sculpture making; hence the presence of his hands along with the model as subject. At first glance the model prevails in each piece, but then the presence of the sculptor’s hands comes into view.
