Abstract or Summary

Recent works by Tim Croucher and accompanying accumulated works. This exhibition is one I’ve been wanting to do for a while: to assemble a group of work made by friends and other artists whose work I admire or draw influence from and put it as a kind of preface to a group of current works of my own. I am affectionate and grateful to each of the works in this peculiar collection. Somehow, they represent aspects of my attitude and activities in painting; The gestural or painterly derivation from (photographic) observed or lived experience; the montage of melodramatic with everyday, the mythic with the familiar. The absurdity of my longing for the idyllic or pristine while also my amusement in the disturbance of intrigue, transgressive play, disquieting mystery. I’ve found this kind of curious simultaneous contradiction in my journeys around Kirikiriroa (Hamilton) and the Waikato region. Despite all its agrarian character and reputation for the uncouth, it has a sultry beauty that I’ve grown to love.
