Matthew 12/12, and Dog (Ceramic by Gregor Kregar, 2004)

What we see goes as two titles at the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre: 72 items entitled “Matthew 12/12” and one entitled “Dog” — ceramics by Gregor Kregar, an artist who works in Auckland and Berlin. (In case you need help with cryptic biblical quotes: “How much then is a man better than a sheep?”) The colourfully attired sheep also appeared in various places (among them A&P shows) as an installation of 12 live sheep in knitted wollen jumpers inside a picket-fence pen.

Gregor Kregar is represented by Gow Langsford Gallery, Auckland. Check out the gallery website and the artist’s personal website for an overview of his wideranging work.

(I did not count the sheep, I took the number from the label. Maybe you want to check if one has gone missing. Could be a case of Matthew 18?)


  1. This is clever. I always enjoy your blog. I am kind of a “lurker”, Visit often but seldom comment.
