About the book:
Writer and curator Peter Vangioni provides an entertaining introduction to the work of one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading artists, taking the reader on a journey from the seedy chaos of de Lautour’s early paintings, ceramics and sculptures to the careful geometric abstracts of his later major canvases. Designed by Aaron Beehre, the book also includes texts by Giovanni Intra, Zara Stanhope, Lara Strongman and Alice Tappenden, and an interview between de Lautour and fellow artist Peter Robinson.
