Rod Eales splits her time between painting and teaching. Her painting interests have always centred around the history of New Zealand still-life, and Portrait of an Icon: The Crown Lynn Swan showcases this interest.

Through this exhibition Rod explores the narrative of the Crown Lynn Swans’ journey from prized possession, to junk, to collectable antique, all while considering our attitudes towards New Zealand’s colonial heritage. This core theme is represented in still-life images that are intense in colour, depth, tone and luminosity.

Upstairs Gallery, free entry.

Open: Tuesday to Friday 10:00am - 4:00pm.  
Weekends and public holidays 1:30pm - 4:00pm.
