“It was just after Christmas 1975 that a shocked Christchurch learned of Carl Sydow's sudden and premature death. He was thirty-five, on the point it seemed of achieving a full realisation of the ideas which had been steadily growing in his work since returning from England nine years earlier. Only two months before, his Works on Paper exhibition at the Brooke-Gifford Gallery in Christchurch had demonstrated with impressive conviction that Sydow had become a force to be reckoned with: it was universally received with both enthusiasm and respect.“

T.L Rodney Wilson, Director, Robert McDougall Art Gallery

Carl Sydow (1940 - 1975) is considered an innovator in New Zealand’s post-modern art practice in both his two dimensional and three dimensional work. He first studied at  Canterbury University School of Fine Arts, then moved to Auckland completing both teacher training and an Honours degree at Elam School of Fine Art in 1963.  

From 1964 – 1968, he worked in the Royal College of Art studios in London. Returning to New Zealand in 1969 he was one of the first artists to pursue a constructivist assemblage approach in his work.
