Gregory O'Brien on The Arts on Sunday, Radio New Zealand National, on Sunday 16 September 2012

Pat Hanly (Ron Sang Publications)  features nearly 300 colour plates and over 50 photographs, this large-format publication offers an unprecendented record of Hanly's effervescent, brilliant paintings, many of which have achieved iconic status. Alongside an essay by Gregory O'Brien which focuses on the artist's immensely productive relationship with the city of Auckland, the book includes illuminating memoirs by four of Hanly's closest friends.
