Auckland Art Gallery

We spent our first Sunday in New Zealand exploring Central Auckland. We made our first stop at the St. Patrick’s Cathedral where Joel and Clare had so much fun feeding the birds outside the church. We could see the Auckland Sky Tower that looked exactly like Macau Tower. It took us only ten minutes to walk our way to the Auckland Art Gallery with our trustworthy google map to guide us. Here’s a quick photo diary of our beautiful day.

Rockdrop 2017 by Judy Millar

 

It’s impossible to miss this beautiful art installation at the South Atrium of Auckland Art Gallery. The Rock Drop 2017 is a creation by one of New Zealand’s most talented artists, Judy Millar.

Here’s an excerpt from the www.aucklandartgallery.com.

Playing with the complexity of this vibrant junction between the Victorian, neo-Classical and 21st-century architecture of the building, Millar’s towering painterly installation responds to the dynamics of the space and appears to change and morph from different perspectives, provoking new and exciting experiences for Gallery visitors.

L-R ( John Waterhouse’s Lamia and Marco D’ Oggiono’s Madonna and Child)

I fell in love with these two paintings and could gaze at it for hours and hours. I found out that The Corsini Collection will be unveiled next month and I am just so excited to go back to the Auckland Art Gallery.
