Jack Trolove makes large-scale gestural paintings that he thinks of as “second skins for us to feel through”. Using swathes of oil paint, in thick lumps and thin stretches, he makes marks that mimic the processes which occur during the shifting, liminal states we experience in our lives - like when we’re ‘falling apart’ with grief or falling in love. This show is a celebration of paint’s mysterious ability to carry feeling.

From 3 December, visitors to Te Manawa must present their valid 'My Vaccine Pass' at point of entry.
