By Paton, Justin
My painting tells you where I am at any given time, where I am living and the direction I am pointing in. This soulful, accessible, engaging book, written by Justin Paton, takes readers on a journey through the landscape of Aotearoa as McCahon saw it and painted it - McCahon's Ne...w Zealand. From Muriwai to Nelson, Otago to Canterbury, and many more places in between, Paton presents a generous selection of more than 175 of McCahon's great paintings of our country, including iconic and beloved works, those seldom seen and some never published before. Paton has been described as 'a master of accessible art' who is 'brilliant' at 'making art accessible to everyone' (SMH) - and this book is no exception. Proudly published for the 100th anniversary of Colin McCahon's birth in association with Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki.Read more
