Marilyn Webb prints and pastels
An outstanding artist and art educator, Marilynn Webb has international stature as a printmaker. Less well-known are her brilliant pastels evoking New Zealand’s southern wilderness areas: Lake Mahinerangi, the Ida Valley, Fiordland and Stewart Island in particular. This book brings together works from a forty-year career, with an essay by Bridie Lonie and foreword by Cilla McQueen. With part Nga Puhi descent, Webb trained under the Arts Advisory Scheme developed by Gordon Tovey, and worked as an arts adviser in the Northern Maori Project. The framework from this experience has sustained her throughout her career and her students include many of New Zealand’s interesting new artists. She has spent much of her adult life in the South Island, engaged with the landscape and environmental issues. These concerns are apparent in her major series of works, reproduced here in colour.
