Gretchen Albrecht artist interview

'Albrecht has developed one of the most widely recognised personal styles in New Zealand painting. Most familiar being her colour saturated shaped canvases. She once described these works as a shape to contain a feeling. The images resonate combinations of colour and geometry; her paintings are poetic images that allude to the landscape, family, faith, literature and cosmology.

In the organic way that they unfurl and combine, the important work of Albrecht's asserts the power of abstract art and confirms the claim that less is actually more.'
