On the radio

Today on the radio I'll be talking about the Len Lye Centre in New Plymouth getting its funding, Gustav Klimt’s last studio being reconstituted in Vienna, and Rob Cherry, Joe Sheehan and Peter Trevelyan shows at Pataka in Porirua.


Here's the gallery of images, and the audio. I also managed to slip in an impromptu minute on Peter Robinson's new show at Peter McLeavey's.

Mark Amery review of Sheehan’s exhibition

Peter Trevelyan, Profiles, (I think), currently on display at Pataka.
I was reminded looking at Trevelyan's four small wall-based sculptures at Pataka (you can see two of these above) of Isaac Gilseman's lovely drawing of the profile of Cape Foulwind

Isaac Gilsemans, Thus appears the main land to south of the Rocky Point [Cape Foulwind] when you sail along the coast and views of the Rocky Point..., 1642. Alexander Turnbull Library.

I got so happily immersed in this and other drawings I made a set of coastal profiles and hydrographic maps on DigitalNZ.
