Geoff Thornley Tondo acrylic on canvas on board

Lot 58: Geoff Thornley Tondo acrylic on canvas on board

Auction Date: Dec 04, 2007

Estimate: $20,000 - $35,000

Description: Geoff Thornley Tondo acrylic on canvas on board signed and dated 3.81 verso Provenance: Private Collection, Wellington 1175mm diameter Geoff Thornley is widely recognized as 'a painter's painter, an artist's artist'. He produced the interlocking wooden constructions such as Tondo, between 1978 and 1982. This seminal period is a very important series in Thornley's development. Thornley employs finely textured polyester canvas, stretched and folded around the edges of thin wooden panels in the production of these works. Each piece is gessoed to attain a plaster like smoothness with the slight nuance of a canvases gridded weave, painted with layers of fine veils of paint, slowly applied over a long period of time resulting in a staining effect. Tondo exists of two paneled layers that interlock together employing a precise system of fastenings. The composition originates like every other in the series from a watercolour study. The openness of the circular colour field is cut into by triangular wedges, which arithmetically trisect and progress in size, 1:2:3. A finite punctum on an infinite void. Which inhabits an uncertain space between the two dimensional and the three dimensional, oscillating between the material three dimensional and the painted non-objective. Thornley seeks clarity in style and aesthetic that goes beyond the rigidity of formalist structures. Thornley has commented that around the time that the Constructions began, he wanted to escape the atmospheric and quasi-naturalistic effects that the softer more painterly Albus work still seemed to encourage - of wanting to escape reference, allusion and illusionistic effects altogether ( reference: Geoff Thornley Constructions 1978-1982 page 9. A conversation between Morgan Thomas and Thornley April 2007). Jonathan Organ...

Roy Good Spiral & Six Rectangles acrylic on canvas

Lot 106: Roy Good Spiral & Six Rectangles acrylic on canvas

Auction Date: Oct 16, 2007

Estimate: $7,000 - $10,000

Description: Roy Good Spiral & Six Rectangles acrylic on canvas title inscribed, signed and dated '93 verso 765mm x 1830mm Good began his career exhibiting at Petar-James Gallery, New Vision Gallery and Gallery Data during the 1970's, showing early on with artists such as Gordon Walters, Milan Mrkusich and Geoff Thornley. His artwork is an exploration of the most refined geometrical abstraction, geometrically dividing the painted surface. 'Spiral and six rectangles' is a very complex and elaborate composition, employing the concept of entropy and divine proportion, his work moves progressively from a curvilinear, fluid, organic conception towards a more rigid composition in which the active mobile elements connect the one to an another by a network of lines inextricably forming a pattern of complex relationships. Essentially Good's forms are static, the circular spiral shows a state of perpetual motion but at the same time, perfect poise. The Spiral Series was motivated by two things, firstly a response to the Korus of Walters and a consequent cross over into imagery Good designed for the New Zealand Expo Logo in Seville in 1992 (The Spiral Logo, a copy of which is in Te Papa) The rectangles that form the other component in the work relate to previous series titled "Rectangle and Bar" of the late 70's. Recent and Upcoming Exhibitions include: 2003 Vuletic & His Circle, Sarjeant Gallery, Wanganui and Gus Fisher Gallery, Auckland. 2007 - 2008 In Good Form - Roy Good Retrospective 1968 - 2007: Lopdell House Gallery, Titirangi, Auckland. Good is represented by Artis Gallery, Auckland. JO...
