Book a group of friends or workmates for a bespoke tour of the exhibition Louise Henderson: From Life and gain new insights into one of New Zealand’s most dynamic artists.
Louise Henderson: From Life is the first major survey of work by French-born, New Zealand artist Louise Henderson (1902–1994). Featuring work from across Henderson’s seven-decade career, the exhibition traces the development of the artist’s bold and colourful abstract style. The exhibition reappraises Henderson’s remarkable and complex practice, exploring the evolution of her art and the periods she spent working in Paris, Christchurch, Wellington, Auckland and the Middle East.
Louise Henderson: From Life includes early watercolours of the Canterbury landscape, abstracted still-life compositions, sensuous Cubist representations of the female figure and lyrical explorations of the New Zealand bush. It culminates with the monumental series The Twelve Months, an ambitious undertaking that Henderson completed when she was 85 years old.
