Overview

Published in association with the Dunedin Public Art Gallery's major Jeffrey Harris retrospective, this fully illustrated book confirms Harris's place in the front rank of living New Zealand painters. This unique monograph highlights major themes and charged episodes from Harris's three decades of prolific creativity, reaching from razor-sharp etchings and jewel-like "icons" to sumptuous triptychs and unflinching self-portraits.

Reviews

"The book provides a razor-sharp insight into Harris' ways of working and thinking and making art, which is impossible to ignore. Lavish full-page reproductions of works make it irresistible."  —Art News New Zealand
