• Peter Stichbury

Michael Lett is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Peter Stichbury.

"Crisp outlines, marblesque modelling, and three-quarter views coalesce to create arresting figures that are both pattern-like and sculptural in this new – yet familiar – community of Peter Stichbury’s painterly world. The figures are reminiscent of fifteenth-century portraits, such as Rogier van der Weyden’s captivating Portrait of a Lady, with their strong, almost abstracted forms against plain backgrounds, their faces ethereally beautiful with elegant, exaggerated features, silky smooth skin and freshly brushed hair. The colours harmonise both within individual canvases and across the community of painted souls, as if to locate them all in a transcendent sphere somewhere else."

–Erin Griffey

A full suite of exhibition images is now available to view online here. The gallery remains closed while Auckland is in Covid Alert Level 3, but Michael Lett looks forward to welcoming visitors back to the gallery when Auckland moves to Level 2 restrictions.
