JACK TROLOVE AT WHITESPACE
Check out Wellington artist Jack Trolove’s exhibition at Whitespace in Auckland this September. Jack works with strong colours and thick layers of paint. NZ House & Garden art writer Warwick Brown says: “His works seem abstract at first glance, then not quite so, and then the face of a man or woman suddenly appears, as if by magic.” 26 September-22 October, Whitespace, Auckland, whitespace.co.nz
Theatre company Massive is taking its 2016 show on tour. The Wholehearted is about love, and tells stories of devotion from young and old. It explores first crushes, Captain America and even includes a few action scenes. 5 September-13 October, Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Hawke’s Bay, Christchurch and Dunedin, massivecompany.co.nz
