For TENT, Föenander Galleries is proud to present a new series of works from artists Michael Dell, Marinda Vandenheede & Roger Mortimer with works created especially for TENT. Additionally, Billy McQueen, Neal Palmer and Barry Ross-Smith also showcase a small selection of works which anticipate what is to come in the 2021 calendar.
Alongside this presentation the gallery is also proud to be launching Roger Mortimer’s newly published book:
Apocrypha: The Maps of Roger Mortimer.
This beautifully produced book (by Index Publishing) is a comprehensive survey of Roger’s map paintings, of the last 12 years. The 160 page book is heavily illustrated with Roger’s intricately detailed works and will hold a special place in the landscape of contemporary NZ literature. An impressive line-up of writers from a variety of disciplines have contributed to the insightful collection of six essays.
To celebrate the launch of Apocrypha: The Maps of Roger Mortimer, Roger – for the first time – is realising an editioned print of 10 for exhibition, alongside the Auckland debut of a magisterial nine-panel painting!
