John Reynolds is one of New Zealand’s foremost artists.
For several years he has been working on a body of work that examines the real-life disappearance of Colin McCahon on the eve of the exhibition I WILL NEED WORDS, in Sydney in 1984, when the artist went missing in Sydney’s Botanical Gardens and was found five kilometres away the next morning, disoriented and confused.
This body of work, called Missing Hours, have included WalkWithMe in 2016, and FrenchBayDarkly in 2017, both exhibitions playing with titles of iconic McCahon paintings.
A new chapter in the project, timed to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of McCahon's birth, is to be exhibited at the Auckland Art Fair, May 1-5, at The Cloud, Auckland Waterfront.
