Abstract or Summary

"A New Life in Niue: A Conversation with John Pule", Art New Zealand No. 161, Autumn 2017, pp. 46-53. The introduction to the article reads as follows: "I met John Pule for the first time at the end of last year, a hurried introduction at the opening of his solo show at Gow Langsford where, with toddler in tow, I barely had time to quaff a beer let alone digest the paintings. It was immediately clear that the paintings were new – somehow more joyous and freer than much of Pule’s previous work. A more leisurely return visit to the gallery gave me a fuller appreciation for the sense of continuity with earlier paintings too, in the artist’s characteristic combination of raw materiality and fine, elegant drawing. Our subsequent interview also allowed me to enjoy more of Pule’s distinctive humour and humanity, and yielded a glimpse of his new life on Niue where he has built himself a writer’s hut and painting studio and spent the most time on the island since he left at the age of two."
