Auckland-based Greer Twiss is one of New Zealand's most senior sculptors, who also made a very significant impact on generations of artists through his tertiary teaching over three decades. For Presence, a selection of works in bronze, galvanized steel and lead spanning the years 1965-1990 are presented. Smaller cast bronze works depicting athletes in motion, and protest figures engaged in marching and congregating will be shown. Large floor-based works invite viewers to consider the ambiguity of manmade objects and the traces of human interaction.
