Untitled (Bathers)

This exhibition is now closed

Séraphine Pick's lush watercolour offers a utopian vision in the car park elevator.

As you ride between floors in the elevator from the Gallery car park, you'll also be transported to an inner world of the artist's imagination. Pick's painting depicts groups of bathers in a pool surrounded by bush, with a canopy of kaponga, or silver tree fern, overhead: it's concerned with the failure of utopian dreams. Commissioned to fit the proportions of the elevator, the original watercolour has been made into a large-scale digital print which immerses you in the detail of the brushwork – enabling you to revel in its blots and blooms, its drips and transparent washes.
