The Artist As Peasant

PAULNACHE is exhibiting Matthew Couper at the 2013 Auckland Art Fair who is described by Huffington Post's John Seed as "an artist with a Kafkaesque view of the world whose imagery suggests a pagan Catholic Cirque du Soleil". The artist will deliver a solo performance each day of the art fair as a painting monkey, accompanied by a recent suite of work from his Las Vegas studio.

Galleries are what it’s all about

Auckland Art Fair was established in order to raise the profile of the region’s galleries and their represented artists and to provide a platform that enables them to engage with and cultivate new audiences. The participants in this fair are people for whom art is not a market, it’s a way of life.
