Like Moore-Jones, Gauldie has also
painted war action in his position
as the official NZ Defence Force
Artist, a role he has held for 10 years
that has taken him to Afghanistan,
Antarctica, Tilamar East Timor and
the Solomon Islands.
“Matt is a vibrant, enthusiastic member
of the art community and has that
‘number eight wire’ quality and,
combined with a dry sense of humour,
will make for an entertaining speaker”,
said Trust Chairman Stuart Christie.
