Séraphine Pick's original and imaginative practice has made her one of New Zealand's most highly regarded painters.

Séraphine Pick's original and imaginative practice has made her one of New Zealand's most highly regarded painters. From the spectral dresses, leaky baths and teetering suitcases of the 1990s to the psychologically-charged dreamscapes of more recent years, this large-scale survey will bring together more than 100 works made between 1994 and 2009.

Tracing the effects of Pick's ongoing interest in memory, identity, sexuality, and imagination, the exhibition will unveil several new paintings and be accompanied by a richly illustrated publication, featuring essays on relevant aspects of Pick's practice as well as responses to individual works by leading art writers.
