The Man In The Hat

There's an airy spirit of existential enquiry floating through Luit Bieringa's lovely portrait of Wellington artdealer Peter McLeavey. A fundamental biographer's question – what makes this guy tick? – is quietly turned back on us: McLeavey seems to live a highly ordered life in a state of perpetual curiosity about what makes any of us in this corner of the world tick, himself included. Starting out as a dealer from his bedroom flat in 1966, McLeavey was already championing Toss Woollaston, Colin McCahon and Gordon Walters as purveyors of vision informed by New Zealand experience.
