Bruce Luxford
at Zimmerman Art Gallery
1 Aug 2013 - 31 Aug 2013

Added by Zimmerman

This month Zimmerman Art Gallery is showcasing eight new oil paintings by Wellington artist Bruce Luxford.

Following a successful career in graphic design, Luxford now works as a full time painter. A former student, then tutor, at the Wellington School of Philosophy, Luxford says: "It seems something within me has been seeking a vehicle by which to make personal statements on what is observed and experienced in a world full of tensions and contradictions. Setting aside 'pretty picture' art, I believe the artist has a responsibility to respond and comment on these contradictions, to generate narratives, recording and commenting on events."

Luxford is an elected member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, and the 2009 winner of the Gordon Harris Art Award.

Zimmerman Art Gallery is at 359 Main Street West, Palmerston North and is open 11am to 3pm daily (including weekends).
