ART HOME & AWAY
Three very different and significant New Zealand artists have been the subject of recent books: Melvin Day; Louise Henderson; and Colin McCahon. Respective authors Gregory O’Brien (who co-wrote Melvin Day: Artist with Mark Hutchins-Pond); Julia Waite (coeditor of Ockham NZ Book Awards longlisted Louise Henderson: From Life); and Peter Simpson (Ockham NZ Book Awards longlisted Colin McCahon: There is Only One Direction. Vol 1. 1919-1959) sit down with Linda Tyler to track the trio’s influences and reach, as well as their singularities, similarities, and divergent trajectories.
