‘Contemporary New Zealand Art’ is comprised of a set of four individual books, Volumes 1-4.
They offer a comprehensive view of New Zealand artists working at the end of the 20th century. Each volume consists of over 100 artworks, reproduced in full colour, representing twenty established and emerging artists orking in a variety of media – painting, photography, sculpture, installation and multimedia.
Each book shows a wide selection of each artist’s work, providing visual references to their individual development and documenting their contribution to the dynamism of contemporary New Zealand art. A brief essay on each artist is given, including biographical details and a list of exhibitions which provides a context for their work.
The number, range and quality of the reproductions throughout all four books make the series a valuable resource in the dynamic arena of visual arts in New Zealand.
