The political landscape

When I told a senior New Zealand art critic that I was writing about Emily Jackson he screwed up his face. The art that Jackson produced in such quantities for so many years was, my friend maintained, ‘outdated’. Jackson was a landscape painter, he pointed out, and landscape painting is ‘passe’. 

In the decades after World War Two the genre was, he admitted, fashionable, as young men and women like McCahon and Woollaston and Angus wandered through the New Zealand countryside, squinting at hills and headlands and horizons and trying to put them onto canvas and board. But times had changed, the art critic insisted. 
What could Jackson’s paintings of the King Country or Otago’s backblocks have to say in the twenty-first century, when New Zealand is an overwhelmingly urban nation plugged into a globalised economy and the worldwide web? 
I think that my friend the art critic is wrong, and that Emily Jackson’s landscape paintings are pressingly relevant to contemporary New Zealand. Over at EyeContact I've published an essay comparing the glossy art of the 100% Pure New Zealand Campaign, which exhibits its stuff on billboards and in glossy magazines around the world, with the cryptic paintings of Emily Jackson, who has just published a posthumous book with Atuanui Press.

Well, I've never heard of her. I will read your blast on eye contact Scott. Your still getting bombarded with Spam. I urge you restrict comments on here as this inhibits others such as myself from wanting to even look at the Blog at all. It is very annoying as I like to see follow ups that are to do with the actual post, not rubbish from bloody wogs (see below) and advertisers.

Spam is a form of self-expression.

Spam is a bloody nuisance. Self expression and anonymous comments are all pointless. So I have unsubscribed from here. Of course the person who spams says "spam" is a form of self-expression but these people ruin the Blog situation with their cowardly anonymity. It is pointless receiving comments from people one doesn't know or who don't have the courage to say who they are.

Jack Ross (rightly) filters comments out which leaves out the Loonies, the advertising for criminals wanting to rip people off, or the terrorist Arab or whatever the thing is on here above, and the pointless or offensive stuff.

I'm not sure how airbrushing (as in 100% pure) is removing *ambiguity*?

I went to the launch. The book and the art looked (and were) interesting. I might either Blog about it. It is good art. There were a lot of interesting literary and some art luminaries there. The book was out of my price range but I want to get a copy some time. More later and elsewhere.

It's certainly a book worth having, and the combination of the journal, the history etc and the great art, make it a book worth owning or reading from the library.
