Patrick Lundberg has been awarded the 2014 Frances Hodgkins arts Fellowship. Run by the University of Otago, the fellowship provides a New Zealand-based artist with a studio space and the salary equivalent to a full time university lecturer for a 12 month period. This will be Lundberg’s first opportunity to concentrate exclusively on his practice and he plans to develop one distinct body of work, making paintings that he describes as ‘games or instruments’. He first presented this type of work in the exhibitions Points, planes, eddies, regresses at Robert Heald in Wellington in 2012 and Games at Ivan Anthony in Auckland in July.
