Saturday 8 December 2018 - Saturday 16 March 2019

Sea, Rock, Earth and Ice celebrates Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s remarkable gift for capturing the spirit of the world’s wildest landscapes.

The exhibition brings together paintings and works on paper spanning four decades, illustrating how Barns-Graham developed her own abstract language informed by both international and local artistic influences.

The works on display are underpinned by an inherent understanding of the natural world and showcase Barns-Graham’s extraordinary ability to evoke a landscape in gradual flux, from eroding coastlines and volcanic vistas to the unseen slow creep of a glacier.
