Exhibition of paintings by Roy Good, curated by Edward Hanfling, 19 January - 18 February 2011.

Born in Timaru in 1945, Good studied at Ilam School of Fine Arts in Christchurch from 1963-65 before moving to Auckland. During the 1970s, he was one of a group of abstract artists, including Milan Mrkusich, Phillip O’Sullivan, Ian Scott, Geoff Thornley and Gordon Walters, who, spurred on by their far-sighted dealer Petar Vuletic, rejected more popular local subjects and styles and aspired to the difficult standards of international modernism. He was subsequently part of the artist-collective that established Gallery DATA in 1977 – a gallery that was again devoted to abstract painting.

In recent years Good has been represented by Artis Gallery, Auckland, while in 2007 a retrospective exhibition of paintings spanning forty years was held at the Lopdell House Gallery in West Auckland. The current COCA exhibition represents something of a homecoming for the artist, while offering Christchurch audiences an opportunity to see three key series of paintings that form a bridge between the 1970s and the present day.
