Happy Holidays

From Studio Carolina Izzo

We wish to thank all our clients and colleagues in the world of Art and Heritage.  May 2018 bring you good fortune.
Our Studios in Wellington and Auckland will close 22 December and re-open 15 January 2018

Studio Carolina Izzo has chosen one of the beautiful works of art to come through the Studio this year for our Christmas card.  It is the early New Zealand work, “Stanley Track, Waimangu Gorge” by Charles Blomfield, 1913.  Our conservation intervention included the structural conservation as well as surface cleaning. In remarkably stable condition, the painting which represents the powerful New Zealand bush, is extremely well painted.
On this occasion we were also able to collaborate with one of the owners, a qualified joiner, to conserve the frame. We are advocates of the importance of the painting’s surrounding. Frames have often been chosen by the artist and are a significant factor in the artwork.  Too often original frames are discarded.

“Every work carries with it an aesthetical case and a historical case: the first concerns the communicative intent of the artist, that which the artist wishes to be seen, the second contains the time that has passed since the production of the work and its entrance into our conscience.” — Cesare Brandi
