by Paul Laster

Art AsiaPacific, Sept/Oct 2014, no. 90

Review of an exhibition of works by Len Lye at the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery in New Plymoth. The exhibition, called "Motion Sketch," celebrates the late artist's work and includes sketches and doodles related to Lye's animated films. The review also speculates on the influences on Lye's photographic technique, shadowgrams, and connects the themes of his work to his travel experiences.
