Judi Bagust
View Artists Works

Distilling the complex to a simple form, these images attempt to reflect that intangible spiritual place transitioning from this known life, into the unknown. My work seeks to refine the act of drawing to its essence, it is equally about what is absent as what is present. These works interpret internal memories, when we are on the brink of transition, we are both present and absent. As if in body we abide and in soul/mind we take flight.

Jos Coufreur

I paint spontaneously, letting the colours form the picture. I cannot predict what the end result will be when I start the painting! Over the long years that I have been working as an artist, I have built up the knowledge and technical skills to do this. And of course my artistic talent helps me to react spontaneously with colour to the subject I am painting.

Kevin Dunkley
View Artists Works

Kevin spends much of his spare time listening to music and painting. I love it, says Kevin. I started out not having a clue what to do or how to do it, but by experimenting I have found a style I enjoy and I have become part of my paintings. They are a retro subconscious trip back to my childhood, when every Christmas the family would go on holiday and I would spend the six best weeks of the year. The thing was it took all day to get there and I would ignore all the untouched beauty of our country. All I wanted to do is get there and start my adventure.

Shane Dudley
View Artists Works

Spud Dudleys inspiration is New Zealands raw volcanic presence and its relatively short but action packed past. He loves the challenge of turning New Zealands history with its sometimes controversial cultural climate into contemporary artworks that are seriously textured and conceptually new. All of Spuds pieces reflect his Pakeha)background blending in with his families Maori heritage. Spuds background in hand applied signwriting and specialist concrete crafting complements his work as he uses cement and coloured oxides as a mixed media to create a unique texture without the use of paints, to overlay onto hardy-board -this is his canvas. This technique allows him to mimic stone without the weight

A Symphony of Portraits, NZSO Players.I began the project simply with the intention of creating a body of work with a coherent theme that would work well as an exhibition. As it progressed my project became a tribute to the NZSO and the wonderful music these supremely talented players make, to the visual excitement of their performances, and to the players themselves. I hope I have been able to convey something of this.- Sally Edmonds

Matt Gauldie
View Artists Works

My art has always been my own interpretation of the people I've met and the places I've been; my life and experiences along the way - from Shearers in dusty Maniototo sheds, painting Rawhiri's descendants at Whiria Pa in the Hokianga to Nervous Jockey's preparing to race at Mosgiel's Wingatui track , Orchard workers at Mariakakaho, Hawkes Bay, NZ soldiers on long range missions high in the mountains of Afghanastans Hindu Kush, Wharfies tying down container ships at Wellington port, the theatrical world of Wellingtons late night burlesque performers...I feel fortunate as an artist to have had the opportunity to investigate and capture these rich experiences in art.

Ross Jones

My paintings tell stories. They are a mixture of seemingly perfect places and events, but as in all good stories, not everything is, as it seems. There is just enough information in the composition to engage the viewer; from there it is up to you to fill in the gaps and create your own story. Sometimes the story is simpler than we think; other times a simple scene may hide a complex situation. Ross Jones.

Simon Payton
View Artists Works

A painting has its own life and direction, its own vitality, its own unique quality. For me it always begins in a haze, like looking through foggy spectacles. The concept for a piece of work lies hidden in my mind behind a multitude of flash images. I close my eyes and its there; and then its gone. The image grows, gains impetus, becomes a need to project itself, to become reality. (Sometimes it morphs itself into something else)

Ruth Phipps
View Artists Works

My work draws on the nature of fabric that is evocative and intensely personal in its ability to suggest human presence or absence. It explores different aspects of fragility, memory, and the transience of time. Heightened shadow and strong shafts of light illuminate detail and imbue a quiet suggestion of human presence, the stillness of the moment and the lingering trace of a treasured memory

Brent Redding
View Artists Works

“I have always painted in more than one style, reflecting a broad set of reasons for picking up the brush. These vary from a desire to capture the colour and light of the world around me, to interests in pattern and design, sequences, capturing movement, and occasionally making social comment. This variety of objectives, combined with variation of medium and technique, has created quite an eclectic body of work. I also teach painting, and years of analysing and solving painting problems of students seems to have extended my own interests and capabilities, further encouraging this eclecticism.”

Exhibitions Gallery Wellington is pleased to announce Remembering The Future, an exhibition of new works by Central Otago painter, ILYA Volykhine. Long recognized for his singular works combining text and figuration, Volykhine merges disparate elements of Russian iconography, re-inscribing strange and often obscured meanings into normative narrative structures reminiscent of comic strips and advertising. Emerging from behind the iron curtain in the early 90's, Volykhine's paintings and works on paper, capture the underlying forces that dominate and determine the conditions of the human psyche.

The sketch is done and I can see where this is one is going - so the process begins. I layer the colours forming a gradient then cut back into each colour with the next and then repeat this process. The layers build, sharp edges emerge and form develops. This goes on for days before I start working on the details, which get smaller and smaller and smaller. As I am applying the final touches, I decide to name her following the theme of places in the sky
