Contemporary New Zealand Art 4 is the final book in a series that offers readers a comprehensive view of New Zealand artists working at the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. This volume features over 100 artworks reproduced in full colour representing twenty artists, both established and emerging, working in a variety of media - painting, photography, sculpture, installation and multimedia. Contemporary New Zealand Art 4 as with previous volumes shows a selection of each artist's work - the art they produced early in their careers and the art they are producing now ? providing visual references to the development of the work of individuals as well as the evolution of contemporary New Zealand art over the last few decades. There is a brief biography of each artist and interpretation of the works shown along with a list of exhibitions in which the artist has participated. It is an important book for anyone interested in New Zealand art.
