This catalogue project entailed brand design from concept stage through to offset print production. All aspects of the visual identity were developed from fonts and typography to colour palette, cover design and layout design. The front cover features artwork by Ralph Hotere.
123 artworks are displayed in the catalogue by artists who include Ralph Hotere, Bill Hammond, Sir Mountford Tosswill Woollaston, Milan Mrkusich, Don Binney, Buck Ninn, Colin McCahon, Peter Siddell, Grahame Sydney, William Sutton, Frances Hodgkins, Dame Louise Henderson and Tom Esplin.
The Black Window Towards Aramoana series brings together some of the most interesting and important aspects of Ralph Hotere’s practice. Not only are these paintings stunningly beautiful to look at, they are inspired compositions bringing together the very ‘essence’ of the man himself in terms of meaning, aesthetics and locale.Fishers Fine Arts
