We always enjoy getting together and playing

The Paradise Band is best described as a
showband. We have a big sound and will play some
original songs as well as songs old and new, some-
thing for everyone to enjoy.''

Abstraction: DR Cafe Noir by Des
Show in the spotlight
By CAROLYN VEEN
Hawke's Bay artist Des Robertshaw pres-
ents a wealth of raw finery in his new
paintings, which draw richly on the figu-
rative flavour of Picasso and cubist
Robertshaw's work, with its instantly
recognisable style, has made a significant
impact on New Zealand art collectors.
From paintings to rugs, his captivating
pieces can be found in Germany, Holland,
the United States and Britain.
Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in
1955, 10 years later his family moved to
Napier, where Robertshaw attended
Colenso High School before moving to
Wellington to study art at Victoria
Since then his inspiration has been
pulled from the clear purity of light, the
landscape and the human form to cap-
ture the hidden language and elements
that create bold shapes and function as
Fractioning 3-D shapes into level areas
of pattern, Robertshaw's geometrical
quality of stylising an idea is amplified in
the painting Dr Cafe Noir, where strong
blocks of colour, outlined in black, create
Robertshaw's exhibition is currently
under the spotlight at the Red Peach Gal-
lery on the corner of Bridge and
Waghorne streets, Ahuriri.
