  • Welcome to A+Os final Important Paintings and Contemporary Art catalogue of 2012. This catalogue comes in the aftermath of the most successful art auction in New Zealand history, The Les and Milly Paris Collection offered in September of this year was in effect a half century love affair with contemporary New Zealand art. Whilst the auction results were quite extraordinary and included new records for numerous New Zealand artists, the overriding theme of the collection and the contribution made by Les and Milly Paris to New Zealands visual arts discourse revealed the vital role that committed collectors can play within this conversation.

    Over the course of the pre-auction exhibitions held by ART+OBJECT in Wellington and Auckland the A+O team met literally thousands of New Zealanders who are passionate about the art of this country. So many visitors recalled their own personal connection to individual works in the Les and Milly Paris Collection, many of which had been exhibited over the years in public galleries testimony to the generosity of the Paris family in sharing their collection with the nation.

    The new owners of works from the Paris Collection now share a direct link to the tradition of contemporary art collecting that in large measure Les and Milly helped to establish in New Zealand.

    This catalogue includes numerous significant works that reveal the strength and diversity of the art of Aotearoa. It is our hope that these works may form the beginnings of fascinating collections that will move this conversation forward in new and interesting directions.

    The A+O team would like to thank all our clients and friends for their support in 2012 our most successful year to date. In the introduction section of the catalogue you will see some of the exciting 2013 catalogues we have planned. Over the course of the viewing for this catalogue we hope to see you and perhaps enjoy a glass of Seresin wine to toast the artists and collectors that enrich our lives.

    Peter Siddell Untitled Auckland Landscape

    oil on board signed and dated 1974 1363 x 980mm

    Provenance: Private collection, Wellington.

    $65 000 $85 000

    The term realism has always proved to be one of the most elastic in the context of discussing art and in particular the work of Peter Siddell (1935-2011). His highly detailed paintings of the inner suburbanscape of Auckland are most frequently described as realist on account of their highly accurate renderings of the architecture, streetscapes and topography of a place that can be articulated geographically as residing within the suburbs of Mt.Eden, Mt.Albert, One Tree Hill, Ponsonby and environs. Siddells depictions of the villas and gardens of these green and pleasant locales are most often described as realist.

    It is a realism dripping, however, with layers of memory and the filters of nostalgia; at best it is a fond realism. Siddells remembrances of things past evoke the post-colonial, post Edwardian, post-depression era of the artists 1940s childhood. As a paperboy tearing about the empty streets of early morning Auckland the young Siddell accumulated literally thousands of visual references that emerged decades later in works such as Untitled Auckland Landscape.

    Siddells work at its best reflects the conflation of the past with the present: today is tomorrows...
