Us v Them: Tony de Lautour
Peter Vangioni with Giovanni Intra, Zara Stanhope, Lara Strongman, Alice Tappenden and Peter Robinson
Soft cover with Japanese-style stab binding
Writer and curator Peter Vangioni provides an entertaining introduction to the low-brow, high-art world of Tony de Lautour, one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading artists.
Described as “a body of work like nothing else this country has seen”, de Lautour’s paintings and sculptures over the past thirty years are brought together, taking the reader on a journey from the chaos of his early paintings inspired by seedy underground street culture to the careful geometric abstracts of his later major canvases.
Includes an interview between de Lautour and fellow artist Peter Robinson.
