From all of us here at The Central, we are very sad to share the news of John Edgar’s passing. The memories of visiting his studio (like in the photo above) will be cherished greatly. A true talent, his kindness and generosity within the arts in New Zealand is something we won’t forget. Our thoughts are with Ann and his family at this time.
“For thirty years I have been trying to make good sense in my art. I have attempted to imbue my work with both the essence of the mountain, the river and the vast array of knowledge that is available to us in the 21st century. It’s a difficult task to teach a stone to talk. But if you listen carefully you might just catch a word or two." (John Edgar, 2006)
