"Standing among Tony's installation of paintings and painted Coca Cola bottles precariously balanced on a shelf held up by a stick, I was a little freaked out. Tony, the art provocateur, had succeeded in provoking me." Welcome to the low-brow, high-art world of Tony de Lautour. Writer and curator Peter Vangioni provides and entertaining introduction to the work of one of Aotearoa New Zealand's leading artists. Described as "a body of work like nothing else this country has seen", de Lautour's paintings and sculptures over the past thirty years are brought together taking the reader on a journey from the chaos of his early paintings inspired by seedy underground street culture to the careful geometric abstracts of his later major canvases. Includes an interview between de Lautour and fellow artist Peter Robinson.
