Art out of the ordinary

I Thought My World Made Sense, But Then a Goldfish Swam By (2012) is one of a new "gaggle of paintings to amuse and confuse" to arrive from quirky Christchurch painter Tony Cribb, in Artbay Gallery.

Gallery owner Pauline Bianchi, of Queenstown, said this week Cribb's exhibition "Free Range Megachicken" was held together by a bird theme, including the eponymous painting, Black Betty, Phoenix by Night and Small Hills With a Big Bird.

"Hanging on to the edges are numerous paintings of different styles and themes," Mrs Bianchi said.

"These pass comments on social behaviours, relationships and journeys, all wrapped thinly in a layer of hope."
