The 2012 exhibition The Dreams of Children signalled a shift in Michael Hight’s painting practice. The black paintings had a dramatic and nocturnal quality extended in Crossing the Line as the new works continue Hight’s fascination with memory, archives, encyclopedias, and the surprising relations between things. Each work is a theatrical tableau placed upon a shelf and against a black backdrop for viewers to behold.

Exhibition opens: 5pm Tuesday 24 June 2014
Exhibition closes: 19 July 2014
Location: Gow Langsford Gallery, 26 Lorne St, Auckland NZ 1010
