Experiencing Turbulence

Experiencing Turbulence, Art and the weather | Nga toi o te rangi, is a select exhibition offering an insight into how visual artists respond to conditions created by the weather and other natural forces.

The works, which include paintings, photographs, and a video installation, span the last 120 years. Artists include Colin McCahon, Petrus van der Velden, Natalie Robertson, and Anne Noble.

Some of the works use weather to directly represent a mood or state, while others convey more subtly the reflection of human experience in natural forces. Other works reflect the spiritual meaning that weather holds for many artists.
