Stanley Palmer

Holding a personal connection to the trip, New Zealand artist Stanley Palmer’s Father fought at Gallipoli.


Palmer lives in Auckland and has worked as a fulltime artist since 1968.  He began exhibiting in 1958 and has an art practice that covers both painting and printmaking.

Often featuring the coastline or off-shore islands, Palmer’s distinctive prints are produced through a combination of bamboo engraving and lithography. His early prints feature a signature fractured picture plane – a characteristic of working with bamboo.

His works are part of public and private collections including Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand, Wellington, City Art Gallery, Auckland and The Dowse Art Museum, Wellington.
