New Zealand artist Rob Tucker is currently living and working as part of a residency in Bali, Indonesia. Our upcoming show of new works titled Suddenly Things Went Still offers a sumptuous selection of paintings in direct response to this warmer, tropical climate. While at first glance the still-life subject matter of Tucker's paintings appears modest, it is merely a jumping off point from which he can freely and boldly stretch beyond the norm; overblown, textural and graphic, his work is an exploration of the limits of colour and composition.
Prior to this recent relocation to Indonesia, Rob spent an extended period back in his hometown of Auckland, New Zealand working in his beautiful studio. For an artist in his early 30's, Rob's CV reads like that of an artist far more advanced in years. Rob has held numerous successful exhibitions in the USA, Asia, NZ, Australia and the UK. He has also exhibited at the Royal Academy London. In the past 3 years alone Rob's work has been presented at esteemed art fairs in 14 global cities including but not limited to New York, London, San Francisco and Paris. Rob continues his global reach through his network of international representative dealers.
