“I know Mt Eden like the Back of my Hand” (Peter Gibson Smith, 2014)

… like the Back of my Hand”. This piece along with many others by Auckland artist Peter Gibson Smith is currently on display at the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre in a 30 year survey exhibition (1984-2014). Exhibition closes January 18.

The picture below shows Peter (left) discussing his work with fellow artist Evan Woodruffe at the “Artists in Eden” event earlier in 2014.

    Quite a visually striking sculpture!

    He is looking at the back of his hand in that second image. But the leAD IMAGE ONLY SHOWS THE PALM. To know something like the “back of your hand” is to know it very well indeed. Does the artist know Mt Eden well or not. Perhaps it is too early in the day (or even the year) for my poor brain …

    Interesting piece of art and it looks like he is getting a helping hand from the other person 🙂
