Gretchen Albrecht: A Luminous Shade, which is showing only in Tauranga, showcases the artist's latest large works.

Grand in scale, the works still abound with rich layering, perhaps conjuring the flora in a lush and fabulous garden.

 

 

 

 

Albrecht has become associated with the use of shaped canvases, as well as recently exploring different ways to use the traditional rectangle.

Gretchen Albrecht (b. 1943) is well-known as an abstract painter and as an outstanding colourist, whose work is often based on nature and the natural world.
