About the exhibition

Richard Killeen, born Auckland 1946, lives in Auckland. Killeen has been using a computer since 1987 to create his art works as well as an extensive archive of images. He makes use of multiplicity, repetition and ambiguity to assemble his images in ways that suggest a non-hierarchical co-existence between traditional oppositions.

Richard Killeen, born Auckland 1946, lives in Auckland. Killeen has been using a computer since 1987 to create his art works as well as an extensive archive of images. He makes use of multiplicity, repetition and ambiguity to assemble his images in ways that suggest a non-hierarchical co-existence between traditional oppositions. In particular Killeen creates ambivalent plays between nature and culture, inside and outside, similarity and difference, presence and absence, horizontality and verticality. This evokes an unresolvable tension where narratives are incomplete and possibilities remain unconfirmed.

Killeen’s art works have been printed digitally on various supports since 2003. The works exhibited at the Aotearoa Art Fair 2022 include A3 works that are printed on Epson Archival paper, and metre-square works that are printed on Yupo, a Japanese synthetic paper. While the paper works have a fixed orientation, the Yupo works can be hung any way up. Each of these works is unique.
