Tatzu Nishi via John Kaldor

Well as it happens, John Kaldor has been busy outside the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Here you will find two blue boxes which at first glance look as if the two equestrian sculptures by Gilbert Bayes (1923) are undergoing conservation.


But no, these are works by the latest John Kaldor sponsored artist Tatzu Nishi (aka Tazro Niscino, Tatsuro Bashi, Tatzu Oozu), who has created a living room and bedroom which accommodate both details of the The offerings of peace,


and the whole of The offerings of war trampling a double double bed. Bravo! Scooped up by roslynoxley9 where you’ll see his drawings…

These works are spectacular – almost universally loved! Which is actually a difficult thing to achieve, genuinely.
