Sensuous striations of magentas, blues, yellow and greens dance with each other, translating the hills and rugged coastline of Waitākere into a floating expanse of sea, sky and earth. For over 60 years, pioneering abstractionist Gretchen Albrecht has encapsulated the experience of being within the Aotearoa landscape with her gestural sweeps of paint. Melding feeling, imagination and aesthetic instinct, her paintings do not depict landscapes, but instead offer sensory memories that shift and hum, long after the paint has dried. Skydive conjures up images of sunsets so magical that they remain forever burned in your mind; of hills transforming from green, to pink, to inky blue as the sun dips from the sky.
