Max Gimblett – The Art of Remembrance

A rare chance to reasonably acquire art by Max Gimblett.

On the eve of Anzac Day this year, St. David’s church on Khyber Pass Road was adorned with thousands of solid brass quatrefoils, each the size of an outstretched soldier’s hand, remembering all who served in WWI, and by extension, all wars. This three-month long installation, The Art of Remembrance, was created by New York based renowned New Zealand artist Max Gimblett, the project having the objective of fundraising to save The Soldiers’ Memorial Church.

Now disassembled, the installation is split across the five Workshop boutiques resulting in mini displays with their flagship Ponsonby store boasting a spectacular exhibit that soars up its high walls. These signature pieces by Gimblett of which there are seven individual designs, each cut from solid brass and individually screen-printed, are available for you to acquire with all proceeds going directly towards the restoration of St. David’s.

This rare opportunity to so reasonably acquire a piece by the internationally celebrated artist – who’s currently in the country to accept his Queen’s honour to be an Officer of New Zealand Order of Merit for his services to art – is bound to be snapped up, so we suggest you head to your nearest Workshop boutique with haste.
