STARKWHITE, Auckland University Press and the Gordon Walters Estate are pleased to announce the release of Francis Pound's book “Gordon Walters”

Join Cam McCracken, Director of the Dunedin Public Art Gallery, from 5.30pm 14 September at Starkwhite Auckland to launch this important work.

Francis Pound’s exceptional work delves into Walters’ artistic evolution, encompassing his steps and missteps, diverse explorations, and travels both in Aotearoa and overseas. The study sheds light on the influences that shaped Walters’ art, including Māori and Pacific art, surrealism, Mondrian, De Stijl, the Bauhaus, Euro-American abstraction, conceptual art, and minimalism.

As an acclaimed author, Francis Pound’s insights into Walters’ artistry are both profound and enlightening. “Gordon Walters” not only offers a compelling narrative about the artist’s life but also serves as an invaluable resource for understanding twentieth-century art and its multifaceted influences.
