Peter Wareing

From Tiziano Vecellio to Barnett Newman and back (2008)

3 min 44 secSingle channel / Sound / 8mm / Colour / Black & White / Sound

"From Tiziano Vecellio to Barnett Newman and back references two historical pictorial traditions that are dialectically different and echoes the artist’s estranged stance on returning to New Zealand for a visit after many years living in New York. The film seeks a structural synthesis to this dialectical tension that in turn poses new internal contradictions".
