US V THEM
Tony de Lautour
11 May 2019 - 6 October 2019
Welcome to the low-brow, high-art world of Tony de Lautour’s paintings, sculptures and ceramics. One of New Zealand’s leading painters, de Lautour’s early works drew from wide-ranging sources including seedy underground street culture, tattoos, post-punk music and comic books as well as fine English porcelain and antiques. De Lautour was awarded a New Zealand Arts Laureate in 2012, and over the past decade his painting has developed into a unique take on geometric abstraction. US V THEM brings together a selection of de Lautour’s work produced over the past thirty years.
Exhibition toured by Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū.
