"Materiality & Metaphysics: Milan Mrkusich's Chromatic Investigations in Masterton", Art New Zealand, No. 153, Autumn 2015, pp. 60-63. Article about the exhibition of Milan Mrkusich's Chromatic Investigations (1995-96) at Aratoi Wairarapa Museum of Art and History, 2014, curated by Alice Hutchison. The article begins: "It took almost two decades for this exhibition to happen. Milan Mrkusich painted the Chromatic Investigations in 1995 and 1996, not as a series of discrete paintings that could be hung together or apart, or in any space, but with the intention that they be united with a specific architecture to form an installation. Until curator Alice Hutchison had the gumption to have the requisite curved wall built within the high-studded Aratoi gallery in Masterton, no public gallery in the country would show the work. No images of the paintings were previously available in published form, because the work itself did not yet truly exist. I have seen it now, and it is with great pleasure that I recall the experience in writing this article."
