Artwork Detail Request a print

The artist originally described this painting as 'a study of the advancing and receding properties of colours.' City lights departs from conventional representations of urban landscape to generate a complex and kaleidoscopic rhythm. The colours float in and out of 'patch-worked' colour fields within one of the most acclaimed abstract paintings created in New Zealand.
