Scott Lawrie Gallery

New Zealand modernist abstraction is undergoing something of a resurgence right now, with prices rocketing and paintings coveted by private and institutional collectors alike. Perhaps this is in response to the younger generation’s love of loose expression and raw gesture – something you won't find much of in the respected work of senior abstract painter, Roy Good.

A much-loved figure in New Zealand art, Roy has been painting for over 50 years, exhibiting extensively here in New Zealand, while typifying a modernist abstract movement that has become one of the world’s most significant painting genres.

As gallery Director Scott Lawrie says, “A humble man, and a quiet painter, Roy’s work speaks to us from across five decades. Yet this new body of work – completed full time over the past two years – is as fresh and invigorating as any cutting-edge contemporary practice. Bold, uncompromising, playful and beautiful, it’s a show that I promise will be remembered for years to come. These are masterful paintings by one of our best.”
