1. Hanns Kunitzberger, Halfte 1.
This is now sitting behind me at work, people sink into this work and it’s one of the most sublime bits of art I’ve ever experienced, (big call I know). If money wasn’t an object I would have more of them.
2. Kate Newby, Standing Up.
They are so organic in form but still have a real elegance to them. It’s nice having something less rigid and perfect in my office.
3. Callum Innes, Exposed Painting Dioxazine Violet.
I’ve long coveted an Innes painting, there is something about the memory of the paint that was that I find incredibly seductive.
4. Patrick Lundberg, Untitled.
I love Patrick’s work. I believe this one was the first monochromatic work in a cast style and I fell in love immediately. It felt like the one for me.
5. Imi Knoebel, BIG GIRL K.1.
Such a delicate soft looking work but also a thick slab of solid aluminium. The play between shape, material and masterful painting drew me into this Knoebel work immediately.
6. What I really want is a Wynn Hamlyn Yin Yang Sweater, I wanted one but they sold out immediately. I know it’s not winter in Auckland for Christmas but what could be better.
7. Tony Cragg, Substance.
I also wouldn’t complain if Santa helped me out and got me this Tony Cragg work I saw at Gow Langsford at Sydney Art Fair.
