Jos Coufreur
View Artists Works

‘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.’

His approach to painting is somewhat intuitive; the paintings evolve through a process of experimentation and retain a feeling of immediacy when finished.

Matt Gauldie

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
View Artists Works

I’m drawn toward subjects that are everyday, or very special, occurrences in our lives. I prefer to convey the story by adding just enough detail to the composition that I don’t oversell the idea. I invite the viewer to complete the story – to draw their own conclusions. For example: the suitcases and boat, is it a story of arrival or departure? Therefore is it a happy or sad scene?

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 it’s there; and then it’s gone. The image grows, gains impetus, becomes a need to project itself, to become reality. (Sometimes it morphs itself into something else)

Susan Ryder

I have been painting for over twenty years. In that time I have used water colours for the most part however over the last three years I have concentrated on mastering the technique of oils and acrylics. I love the mixing of colours to reflect the light and texture on the canvas. I want to feel I can dive into the canvas and feel the water, to soak up the light and feel the warmth of the sun. I hope the person viewing my work feels this as well. This is what I am trying to achieve in my work.

The sketch is done and I can see where this 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, and after about a week i have begun working on the details, which get smaller and smaller. As i am applying the final touches i decided to name her following the theme of places in the sky, which i name a lot of my paintings after.

Geoff Williams

His work depicts the common place, the humble seagull, his mate`s trucks or boats, with variations from nudes to the Mackenzie Country. Each work begins with a fine detailed preliminary pencil sketch, an artwork in its own right, the ensuing painting then developed using the time-consuming method of crosshatching. This allows for the reflection of the contrasting lights and colour to produce a luminous effect. So exacting is his method it can take up to six weeks to produce just one work, working an eight-hour day.
