  • Description:

    Acrylic, silkscreen and lacquer on board. A clash of the handmade and the machine made - a true comment on our times.

    The New Zealand Railway Cup celebrates, and reflects upon, a time in the 1940s and 50s when the state cared for its people through effective and wide reaching social services.

    Verso: Stamped with the number 4, Rudolf Boelee and 'THE COMMON SEAL OF CROWN LYNN NEW ZEALAND LIMITED'.

    A true Pop Artist, Boelee draws inspiration from, and contributes to, the cultural and political landscape that permeates our lives. Objects become icons, political and historical messages form the subtext of the seemingly everyday.

    'Over the last twenty five years I have tried to make work that speaks on a personal and universal level, looking backward and forward at the same time, investigating New Zealand's recent history in relation to the present'.

    Rudolf Boelee's receipt of several art awards is testament to his position and regard in the art world. As is his place in numerous public and private collections in New Zealand (including the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, and Christchurch Art Gallery) and internationally.
