Maungatapu based Graham Crow is a long-standing name in the Tauranga art scene and is known for his bold and dynamic approach to colour, surface, and light. Crow uses a minimalist scheme to delve into the complexities of surface and colour in his artworks. Described as ‘wall-objects’, they straddle the boundary between painting and sculpture.
Graham encourages people to enjoy his works as individuals with their own diverse ideas. It may be the colours, forms, or textures that one connects with, or the works may be read as reminiscent of other objects, places or forms found in the natural world. For Crow, they encompass the idea of darkness, light and all the spaces in between.
Graham Crow works at Gallery Te Puna include figurative and sculptural wall object paintings.
