COLLING AND GRAY - Delivering Quality Workmanship Kim Porteous (Owner/Operater) Attention-grabbing works of art Honoured artist: Tom Armstrong is ''a master of colour'', according to Jodie Dalgleish, curator of New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts. Armstrong's artwork Haywain is on display at the gallery until the end of the month. By TASHA BLACK A Shannon artist who creates intriguing, bizarre and wonder- ful'' collages and paintings has been selected for the New Zea- land Academy of Fine Arts' honours list. Curator Jodie Dalgleish said Tom Armstrong was one of nine artists honoured by the acad- emy this year, and given the distinguished status of elected artist'. It makes them fully recognised artists of the acad- emy and it gives them exhi- bition privileges that other artists don't have. So, for example, once a year we will have an exhibition for our elected artists,'' she said. In the academy's 127 years it has honoured over 100 artists, about 50 of which are still active. Ms Dalgleish said Armstrong was a master of intrigue and disguise'' and draws on over 300 years of art history, borrowing and remaking its characters, icons and symbols. While Armstrong said he was surprised to be selected, Ms Dalgleish said Armstrong's artwork was grabbing the attention of many'', including the committee members who nominated him for the honours list. Tom could be the next big thing. His work keeps you coming back; it lasts.'' Armstrong's artwork is intriguing, bizarre and wonder- ful collages and paintings'', she said. Armstrong said he was grateful for the confidence'' the academy had shown in his work. He praised the academy for holding well-organised exhibi- tions and the opportunity to present work in great'' gallery spaces. Four works by Armstrong are on show at the academy in Wel- lington until January 29, including the painting pictured right, teaming with a life-as- circus cast of characters and references to whole host of artis- tic, literary, popular and highly personal sources'', said Ms Dalgleish.
