Student Competition
Yea Well, Now Since Then: Jim Cooper

13 Rose Road, Ponsonby. PO Box 68762, Wellesley Street, Auckland

The exhibition runs from Saturday August 10, 2019 to Saturday October 12, 2019

Jim Cooper’s figurative sculpture in clay is a distinctively comical oeuvre. His retinue comprises mawkish characters with specious grins full of teeth and bug-eyed stares, cats and dogs of every denomination, wastrels and minstrels, sad sack characters, music groupies and faded celebrities. Throw in a relative or two from the West Coast and the self-satisfied look on an accountant’s face after announcing a tax refund. Cooper’s anarchic menagerie is ceramic pageantry on a grand scale.
