Exhibition Opening


Extended Stay, an exhibition of new works by John Blackburn, reflects on the artist’s forced hiatus in New Zealand at the beginning of the Global Covid-19 Pandemic.

Daily reflections captured in paint, a diary of sorts, marking a significant period in Blackburn’s life, were packed up and sent to ARTIS Gallery as the artist’s New Zealand visit drew to a close. These paintings can now be seen as a complete body of work at ARTIS Gallery, opening on Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
