Auckland Art Gallery Exhibition

'Hardly Held Lightly'

Artist: John Ward Knox

DM Standen was proud to supply the products used in Knox's Hardly Held Lightly exhibition, on display in Auckland City's Albert Park. The New Zealand Herald reported T.J. McNamara reported on the work:


Knox weaves webs of surprise

"A short while ago John Ward Knox made a beautiful sculpture and showed it high in a corner of a dealer gallery. An intricate spiderweb made in fine silver chain, it was much admired. 

Now the Auckland Art Gallery is showing three such works by Knox, linking their sculpture terrace with Albert Park, but these webs have needed a kilometre of commercial chain. One connects a massive old oak to the terrace. Another is an arch between two trees, and the third is closely linked to the structure of the building. The chains have the magic of surprise hidden in the leafage of the park. They are done with scientifc accuracy and unexpected natural variations in the net pattern. The basic chains that are the anchoring strands are brass in contrast to the bright shine of the web.

Together they make the most stunning and imaginative public work of art to grace the city for some time."

Crane Association Weighload Trophy Winners 2015

For outstanding service to the Crane Association this year's winner of the Weighload Trophy was the late Gifford Linder.

Giff is the second individual to have been awarded the trophy twice since its inception in 1985.

The award was introduced to be presented annually by Crane Accessories Limited, to the 'company or individual who has given outstanding service to the [Power] Crane Association of New Zealand Inc'.

Back in 2004 Giff was presented with the trophy acknowledging his work in completing the Crane Safety Manual alongside industry colleague, Maurice Coffey.

The award was presented at the national Crane Association conference in Tauranga and was accepted by Sam Linder, Giff's son and Managing Director of DM Standen.
