        • CHARLES TOLE - The Blue Fence
          Oct. 23, 2019

          CHARLES TOLE - The Blue Fence

          Est: $20,000 - $30,000

          Oil on hard board - Signed & dated 1973 The Barber Collection boasts numerous excellent examples of New Zealand modernism. This is partly a reflection of Paul and Kerry’s journey as collectors – having travelled and spent time in Europe, their exposure to modern art equipped them to meaningfully engage with the New Zealand response. This blue-hued oil painting by Charles Tole The Blue Fence is the collection’s finest example of New Zealand cubism; it expresses raw, pure engagement with the landscape. While the Barbers were able to draw direct links between European and New Zealand modernism, Charles Tole’s initial exposure to cubism was less direct. After being taught to paint by his older brother John, Charles learnt the formal principles and theory of cubism from John Weeks. It may be thanks to this slight disconnect from the primary source of cubism that his work was able to acquire such a distinct industrial, post-cubist bent. In The Blue Fence, beams of light are presented in vertical facets, and a single blue fence becomes complex. Lending itself to every vantage point, the fence is sharp and flat with angles suggesting that what we see is only a facade. Its depth, and the crisp penetration of pencil on oil, has an effect that is both confounding and satisfying.

        • CHARLES TOLE - Reservoir (Cheviot Country)
          Oct. 23, 2019

          CHARLES TOLE - Reservoir (Cheviot Country)

          Est: $18,000 - $25,000

          Oil on board - Signed & dated 1979 Charles Tole and his brother John believed that style and technique should not be the arbitrary goals of the artist, but elements that flow from “intuition towards the expression and communication of the artist’s message”. This statement helps us to understand the artist’s approach to cubism, and to align the stylistic qualities of Reservoir, Cheviot Country with the nature of his creative mission. By the time he painted this work, Tole had developed a strong cubist language of his own. This painting shuns the need for depth of perspective; there is only stacked flatness – buildings borrowing space from the land, and heaving great strips of land layered on top of each other. Tole has not reduced the land to its purely geometric qualities; instead, he conveys the truth of it. The viewer is drawn closely into this quiet scene of rural industry. The painting’s technical skill and polished quality speaks for itself. Tole’s treatment of colour is mature and succinct; gentle tonal graduations of green reflect the rolling of the hills. Meanwhile, a single plume of smoke breaks up the grid-like formation of the scene and confirms the presence of human life.
