A series of six prints on thick A2 cotton paper selected from
The images are a dialogue between the horizontal and the vertical. Opposites. All the images in the series are square. The vertical, perhaps the landscape, has as much space as the horizontal, perhaps the portrait aspect. Think dialectics, yin yang. I expect I’ll get to elaborate on the opening night. (Date TBA)
I am looking through my photos and found some recent gallery pics I love — here is one Tena I Ruia 1987
A painting for our time!!

If I were flying I’d love to see this exhibition in November.
I inherited a Heidelberg School book from my father, its full of Streeton and familiar to me. Australian impressionism.

Listened to a talk tonight by Julia Holderness
There was no mention of “the theatre workshops at the Bauhaus” that were in the blurb & what attracted me.
Wonderful exploration of metaxy, medial aspect, “truth”.

Working with a range of archival materials from the Macmillan Brown Library & Heritage Collections, Julia Holderness explores her own textile making alongside that of artist and teacher Florence Akins (1906-2012). Akins’ documents relate to her teaching of textiles at the Canterbury College School of Art, and include lecture notes and other instructional resources such as colour diagrams. Holderness reworks them and presents their possible entanglement with the international Bauhaus movement. Connections are also made with Florence Weir (1899-1979), currently the only known New Zealander to have studied at the Bauhaus. In 1936 Weir designed the costumes and sets for a local Christchurch production, and these were said to have been inspired by her time at the Bauhaus. The production was never staged publicly, and in the absence of any surviving documentation, Holderness imagines these designs in an appliqué series. This exhibition is part of a Visual Arts PhD in practice-led research at Auckland University of Technology, in which Holderness develops practices of fabrication, approximation and invention to interrogate archives and their construction of art-historical narratives.
“…construction of art-history.” ?
Going to this exhibit at the Gallery of Modern Art just before the psychodrama conference really warmed me up to Matisse, or more accurately to doing my own sketching.
More images follow. I’ll put up another post with Matisse drawings I found on the net.
Presenting my work is more on my mind right now than making it. Not as much fun, but presentation floats to the top, unbidden. I am thinking about both the world and online. I’ll focus on the latter.
I have changed the name of this blog to “Walter Logeman: Art” with the subtitle In this moment… My art Blog” the reason is clarity. It is still the same blog, I am still “In this moment…” and it is still, as it says on the About Page:
Nothing but art, artists, art talk, art history, art philosophy, pictures and projects. Most of my work and work-in-progress is on this blog.
The clarity seems right because I am working on a Gallery. If you go there now (as I write this) you will see it is heavily under construction.
With the Gallery I can post exhibits, and show work that is complete. Series. Simple. More stable. I sometimes refine an image I have already blogged as I present them to other sites. I will focus on quality.
The first things to be shown there will be my Earth Crosses, of course. Next FLAX.
Digital images can be made in all sorts of ways, and then they can be Presented in many ways as well.
Looks like I will be filling my days at a Symposium here in Christchurch this weekend! It look great. I’ll have a go at blogging it, as will others.
