Laith McGregor: Somewhere Anywhere - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Starkwhite, New Zealand

During his recent travels in South East Asia, including a twelve-month stay in Bali, McGregor has been exploring the conceptual foundations of portraiture, from primitive mark making through to contemporary practice, and the discourses surrounding it. This has enabled him to revisit and rethink his practice while being immersed in various cultural communities.

McGregor says: “The body of work presented in this exhibition is an outcome of my ongoing research to understand the complexity of the human experience and my place within it, in particular investigating the relationship of various interpretations of portraiture as a common vernacular, through the use of masks, deities and notion of the self.”

Exhibition opens: 6pm Tuesday 2 June 2015
Location: Starkwhite, 510 Karangahape Road, Newton, Auckland 1010
