First display in library series

The recent display of Kees Hos' prints in the Library was the first of a series of such exhibitions to be held throughout the year featuring the work of leading New Zealand artists.

Kees Hos studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts at the Hague. He began publishing when he came to New Zealand in 1936. Since then he has explored new methods of relief printing and intaglio which allow him a flexible and spontaneous way of image formation.

The prints in the exhibition are concerned with the duality of spirit and matter. Elements representing our physical material and commercial involvement are contrasted with the organic, spiritual and etheric forces in a free and creative way within the idiom of the medium, but not as illustration.
