KINA Gallery is privileged to offer Taranaki art lovers the unique opportunity to purchase some special pieces by one of New Zealand’s leading artists – Don Driver. This exhibition showcases a selection of pieces seldom seen outside the artist’s own studio.

Driver once said that his aim is “to get an exciting mixture of objects in different colours and forms and make them unexpected”.  His ambiguous juxtapositions have teased and provoked us in the past, and this exhibition promises to continue to challenge our perceptions of the ordinary.

This exhibition at KINA embraces several of Driver’s signature formats.  It provides the people of Taranaki a chance to enjoy and ponder the work of an artist who, although he has aroused much controversy and debate, has undeniably made a significant contribution to abstraction in New Zealand contemporary art.
