Ralph Hotere

A sketch of Ralph Hotere, one of my favourite artists. I was at a Papergraphica the day I did this, learnt about their amazing work place, looked at a bunch wonderful work including Hotere lithographs.

Got immersed & that prompted me to sketch from a video I had out.

I thought I’d said more here about Hotere at the time, but, no. I will add more. Firstly some images. And links.


I recently saw this one in Te Papa, the photo does not do it justice as it looks like a sheet of tin here, which it is, but he has made it quite a blast with his marks on it.

The next two are from http://www.artsfoundation.org.nz/


And these from the Jane Land Gallery

  1. I love the the color palette on this one set against those dark black lines….great moody feeling to this one. I would love to see more done in this style!
