James Ormsby Retrospective at Pātaka Art + Museum

A major exhibition of drawings by James Ormsby is set to open at Pātaka Art + Museum this October.

This exhibition will be the most extensive presentation of James Ormsby's work in a public institution to date.

Curator/Art historian Ngahiraka Mason writes: "James' visual language shows his personal evolution as an artist prepared to seek out his full potential. His restrained yet voluble pencil and brush marks are complex studies. He has a capacity to make his art reappear as if it struts and strides into traditional and mathematical systems that interconnect with culture. He has a joyous approach to colour and uses natural pigments and oils, graphite and ink materials."
