This work comes from Hanly’s Pure Painting and Condition series and was first shown in 1976. In these works the artist moved away from the figurative to a form of abstraction expressive of moments of sharply intense emotional experience. The subtitle of the Auckland exhibition at RKS in which this painting was first shown was Rejoice in All Things.
