new work at the nkb Gallery

new work at the nkb Gallery

This is one of the paintings in the show, it’s oil, ink, pigment on heavy card, and it’s about 700x500mm. I made it from looking at video footage that I took on Mt Taranaki of the pools up from Dawson Falls. I went up there and lugged all my painting stuff, along with camera gear, and I spent the afternoon there taking photos, filming and drawing, and really just getting to know the landscape there. It wasn’t hard - I grew up in Taranaki and went to these pools and waterfalls quite a few times.

This exhibition started last night on Waiheke Island and goes until 11 November, I guess the island will be crazy busy on this beautiful long sunny weekend and maybe lots of Auckland traffic…. I have a small painting in the show :)

Setting up for the Arts Weekend

So I'm nearly all set up for the Arts Weekend - I've pulled work from my studio and made some new work - there seems to be a lot here!  So I thought i'd throw it all into a Catalogue - if you're interested message me and I can send you a copy, as a bit of a prelude to the weekend.

Hope you can make it

Enjoy!

Here are some of my favourites...

So my new studio is two doors down from where I was, further into the Riverbank Lane.  Check out the website here   

I've moved in now, and the gallery will be up and running, but I'll be spending the summer in Raglan and be working back in the studio more from February 2018.  Call in if you're passing by.
