New Zealand figurative artist, Lindsay Crooks, was a significant and important artist of the people. A teacher of life-drawing for more than two decades, his main subject as an artist, was the human figure. His people were buoyant, joyful, life-affirming figures - with full-body shapes worked into careful compositions, celebrating ordinary things, ordinary pleasures and the everyday world.
He was a prolific and genial talent, refusing to use photographs, preferring to draw from life and rearranging what he saw to suit his own stylistic mannerisms.
