Product Detail

Engaging, perceptive, and extensively illustrated, author Ian Wedde shines a light on the extraordinary life of one of New Zealand’s most celebrated artists in this captivating chronicle of Bill Culbert’s art. Drawn to light like a moth to a flame, Bill Culbert used tubes, bulbs, and bands of light as well as objects from his local dump including wheels, plastic bottles, suitcases, and wine glasses to form spectacular sculptures and luminous large-scale installations across his monumental 50-year career. Explore how Culbert twisted conventions by creating his own source of light and legacy to live on within his artworks which can still be found illuminating rooms, entryways, and cities by night.
