Lyrical minimalism in Aotearoa

The latest instalment in US artist Chip Hooper’s ongoing series of ocean photographs is New Zealand’s South Pacific and Tasman Sea. Hooper’s solo exhibition of silver prints opens on March 29 at New York’s Robert Mann Gallery, where he showed his first collection California’s Pacific in 24. Robert Mann: “[Hooper] continues to perfect his approach to photographing the ocean, steadily refining his sense of lyrical minimalism, as in Toward Dunedin, South Pacific, 2003, where a horizon of dark water is broken by the low, jagged line of distant mountains, or in Cape Foulwind Beach, Tasman Sea, 2003, where a monolithic cliff rises beyond the frame.”
