Corrugations: The Art of Jeff Thomson | Man Gallery
15 February 2014 - 21 April 2014
This exhibition examines three decades of work by Kiwi sculptor Jeff Thomson. Known as 'the iron man of Australasia', the artist's trademark style came to the fore in the early '80s when he crafted a series of mailboxes from roadside materials.
Corrugations: The Art of Jeff Thomsonis curated around the processes Thomson uses to make his sculptures, e.g. moulding, shaping, cutting and printing. A corrugated iron-clad Morris Minor, 'chooks', 3 metre high French knitting and corrugated bouquets of flowers are all part of this new exhibition.
Jeff has a strong connection to Hawke’s Bay, having lived here between 1988 and 1993, and having taught art at Dannevirke High School from 1984-1985. He has both a national and international standing as a sculptor, his work includes the iconic HQ Holden station wagon at Te Papa, and his overseas commissions have taken him to the South of France, Germany and Australia.
This exhibition was developed and is toured by Tauranga Art Gallery.
