Patrick Tyman: 15 15 15
Patrick Tyman: 15 15 15
When: Monday, 10 Mar 2014 - Sunday, 18 May 2014
Location: Aiganitghe Art Gallery 49 Wai-iti Road Timaru

This exhibition showcases the colourful, vibrant and intricately detailed paintings of Patrick Tyman.

The title '15 15 15' represents the three geographical and cultural periods of the artist's life: born and raised for 15 years in India, then lived for 15 years in England, and Tyman has now lived for 15 years in New Zealand.

    Living in three different countries has influenced my work profoundly and my art has been shaped and developed in directions     related to each culture.

         - Patrick Tyman

Tyman's seventeen larger-than-life oil paintings on loose canvas will be on show in the Main Gallery until May 18.
