Greer Twiss has produced an astonishing body of work over six decades, and as demonstrated by this new exhibition, is still a fully productive, inventive and innovative figure.

Greer Twiss is one of New Zealand's longest working and producing sculptors, he was an associate professor at the Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland University, becoming Head of Sculpture in 1974 until his retirement in 1998.

In 2002 Greer was acknowledged for his contribution to sculpture in the Queen's Birthday Honours and has been recognised as an Icon by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand.

A major survey exhibition of Twiss's work was held at the Auckland Art Gallery in 2003 and in 2004 two new public sculptures by Twiss were installed in Auckland, one at the Viaduct and one in the Auckland Domain.Twiss's iconic Fountain sculpture, completed in 1969, on the corner of K Road and Symonds Street, is one of Auckland most successful and familiar public artworks.
