Tony Rumball - Feature artist for February

Events > Exhibitions

Tony Rumball
at Zimmerman Art Gallery
1 Feb 2015 - 28 Feb 2015

Added by Zimmerman

For the month of February, Zimmerman Art Gallery is featuring nine new paintings by Tony Rumball.

Rumball's works reflect his interest in our human ways and means, imagined snapshots of people or animals going about their daily lives, or captured in the midst of amusing, perilous or contemplative moments. Rather than exploring mystical concepts or posing great philosophical questions, the works read more as a visual commentary on “the incidentals, the common experience, the daily news. This gives the work a wide appeal – we can all share in the humour, someone raising the everyday to art.” (Fran Dibble, 2012)

Zimmerman Art Gallery began showing Rumball’s works in May 2010. Since then, Rumball has held a number of solo shows at Zimmerman, as well as making available selected works for display year round.

A regular exhibitor in Taranaki, Rumball’s paintings have formed part of a number of shows at the Percy Thomson Gallery in Stratford, and Taranaki Art Gallery in New Plymouth. In 2014, Rumball’s works were part of an exhibition of Taranaki artists’ works shown at Galerie 59 Rivoli in Paris.

Rumball is one of the artists featured in the book Emerging Collectable Taranaki Painters 2010-2011 and the 2011 publication Virtual Tart @ Home: Art & Artists from Taranaki, New Zealand.

Exhibition runs until 28 February 2015
