In the last half-decade, artist Shane Cotton has created a series of adventurous and exhilarating 'skyscapes' – full of soaring birds, ragged skywriting and plunging cliffs. A major exhibition of these of these works at Christchurch Art Gallery, titled The Hanging Sky, has been postponed until 2012 due to the earthquake, but Christchurch audiences can learn more of them in this illustrated artist's talk. In conversation with senior curator Justin Paton, Cotton will discuss journeys, sacred landscapes, the power of words and the art of painting.

Trained at Canterbury School of Fine Arts, Shane Cotton is a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate and recently appeared in the 17th Biennial of Sydney (2010) and solo shows in London, at Rossi and Rossi Gallery, and Sydney, at Anna Schwartz Gallery.

Held in the Geo Dome, Christchurch Events Village.

The talk is one of a series of REAL New Zealand Festival events and is being produced in partnership with the Arts Foundation. It is being held next to the Rugby World Cup 2011 Fanzone in North Hagley Park from 9 September to 23 October.
