Exhibitions Gallery Auckland is proud to invite you to Job Klijn's first solo exhibition in Auckland.

Job Klijn came to New Zealand 27 years ago and says the stories he tells in his paintings are not just his own, but they come from his French wife, friends and other immigrants that he has met.

All of Klijn's materials are recycled. He uses old house paint, varnish and stains to build heavy textures, painting on hardboards, floorboards, pallet wood or anything he can get his hands on. Soil, string, a rusty hinge or an old tap could also make it into his works. He says he loves old.

I love recycling, the whole principal of it is fantastic. It's like when you walk into a new suburb and to me, there is nothing there, it's just new. But then there'll be an old falling down shed somewhere and it has past and history. People are trying to get perfection, but for me, it's the opposite.

Klijn says he starts his paintings with a layering and then goes on to add other elements, outlines and sometimes figures. - Warwick Smith Fairfax NZ

The exhibition runs until 1 April 2017.
