The Desire of the Line: Ralph Hotere Figurative Works
Dunedin Public Art Gallery
Auckland University Press, 2005 - Art - 156 pages
Presenting a less-known side of a well-known artist, this collection of Ralph Hotere's line drawings and paintings of women was done between 1959 and the late 1990s. The collection is divided into two bodies of work: the Woman Series and the Song Cycle. As its name suggests, the Woman Series is composed of line drawings of nude women; and the Song Cycle was originally drawn for a stage performance in 1975 and suggests movement and sound.
