He stands about 2 metres tall. Gregor Kregar’s Thinker 3 with its shiny stainless steel exterior contemplates the green of the trees, reflects in the glass of Te Uru.
We have shown more of Gregor Kregar’s work on these pages.
These sculptures by Gregor Kregar are on display in the grounds of the TSB Bank Wallace Art Centre. Constructed from acrylic sheet and aluminium – almost all faces being triangles.

Like almost every Aucklander as well as the passengers of three cruise liners in port on the day, we went to the Headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition on Waiheke Island on Wednesday last week (Waitangi Day). As the ferry entered Matiatia Bay, we could see this interesting building on the ridge of the headland.
A very orderly structure from the distance, the impression is one of chaos and fun as one approaches.
Complete with swings that were always in use, it is built from recycled timber, to contrast with the minimalist modern dwellings that can be found along the trail.
Made from marine grade stainless steel, they will set you back NZD 20,000 a piece. At Headlands Sculpture on the Gulf on Waiheke Island (January 28 to February 20).
Part of the enjoyment of art exhibitions is “people watching”. In the solemn setting of museums, this has to be practiced with due restraint. By contrast, open-air events can be much more in your face, camera at the ready.

At the end of our walk through the Headland Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition the clouds finally disappeared completely, and as we sat down at the Cable Bay Vineyards we enjoyed a briliant afternoon. The vineyard itself also hosted a small sculpture show, amongst them this glistening work by Gregor Kregar, entitled “Immersive Echo” (we have previously shown his flock of cornered sheep at the TSB Bank Wallace Art Centre).

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.
(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?)
