Philip Clairmont (NZ)

Country Carnivore Carnival (n.d.)

Philip Clairmont (NZ) Country Carnivore Carnival (n.d.) One of the striking things about Country Carnivore Carnival is the incredible downward vortex of energy that Clairmont (1949-1984) channels through the lowered head; down through the seated figure’s arms; and finally through the hand which grips a pencil… Read more

Lara Almercegui and shop renovations

Michael Smither (NZ)

Hills of Tongaporutu, 1972

Tongaporutu is a small pretty coastal settlement 67 kilometres north of New Plymouth at the mouth of the Mokau River lined with picturesque old-style family baches. Michael Smither, as we would expect, gives us a different vision of the place. The folksy charm of Smither’s rural… Read more
