John Reynolds – Blutopia

‘What bliss there is in blueness’
With Blutopia, a compact 256pp book, Auckland artist John Reynolds showcases a purple patch of blue projects over recent years.
The beating (blueish) heart of this dusky book is the rambling and twilight series of works on paper, Blutopia, which map the territory and take center stage within it. Both a homage to blue, and a celebration of it in all it’s astonishing multiplicity, Blutopia sings up our blue future… Condition Blue, Blue Funk, The Blue Hour, A Blue Note.
