Artist in the
Abstraction: DR Cafe Noir by Des Robertshaw.
By CAROLYN VEEN
Hawke s Bay artist Des Robertshaw presents a
wealth of finery in his new paintings, which draw
on the figurative flavour of Picasso and cubist
Robertshaw s work, with its recognisable style,
has made an impact on New Zealand art collectors.
From paintings to rugs, his captivating pieces can
be found in Germany, Holland, the United States
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1955, his
family moved to Napier 10 years later, where
Robertshaw attended Colenso High School before
moving to Wellington to study art at Victoria
Since then his inspiration has been pulled from
the clear purity of light, the landscape and the
human form to capture the hidden language and
elements that create bold shapes and function as
Fractioning 3-D shapes into level areas of pat-
tern, Robertshaw s geometrical quality of stylising
an idea is amplified in the painting Dr Cafe Noir,
where strong blocks of colour, outlined in black,
create the form.
Robertshaw s exhibition is currently under the
spotlight at the Red Peach Gallery on the corner of
Bridge and Waghorne streets, Ahuriri.
