Solo exhibition at Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand
Comic Drop an exhibition of new works by gallery artist Judy Millar. Millar is one of New Zealand’s most exciting contemporary painters who shares her time between a remote property in West Auckland and inner city Berlin – where her career continues to gain momentum.
Comic Drop brings together a series of new works that combine exaggerated enlargements of handmade gestures with vivid colour. In these works Millar continues to takes on the history of expressive painting and turn it inside out.
Recent career highlights include two exhibitions at the Venice Biennale representing New Zealand with her solo exhibition Giraffe-Bottle-Gun 2009; and in Time, Space, Existence a curated exhibition at Pallazo Bembo in 2011. Her work is about to be featured in a large exhibition of star international art in the Czech Republic and an upcoming solo exhibition at IMA Brisbane, Australia.
