In his first solo exhibition in Auckland in many years, recently retired art teacher Roger Staples uses objects from nature that attract him – rocks, stones, shells and plants amongst them – as his still life elements.

Arranging them on wooden tables or inside crates, he plays with and often discards objects, but some combinations suggest the beginnings of a painting.

“Things evolve. It is an intuitive, creative process. I hope my work provokes thought, rewards repeated viewing and retains a sense of mystery.”
