After all the work and preparation it is wonderful to receive support from the local newspaper…
“Nature’s Colour and Form” This joint exhibition showcases the work of two Horowhenua artists; painter Gill Allen and jeweller Paula Dixon. With nature as a significant influence for both these artists, this exhibition translates the beauty and colour of nature in a collection of jewellery and acrylic paintings.
Another painting being exhibited at my September show. I have indulged my love of ink drawing with this acrylic work. With lots of movement and colour I am sure it will bring much happiness to it’s viewers as it has for me creating it!
I am pleased to be able to say after weeks of work this large central exhibition piece is finished! I have rekindled a real love for plants and flowers over the past month or so, not to mention the use of colour. I have not settled on a title for this piece but believe it will relate to new beginnings and also reflect old ways of working – it’s been like revisiting a favourite place after many years away – warm and familiar. Over the next month or so I will be posting the work that will be hanging in my September exhibition at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-pō here in Levin, New Zealand.
Have been busy in the studio working towards a September exhibition at Te Takeretanga o Kura-hau-po here in Levin. With only 8 weeks to go I have lots happening in the studio. These are a few working shots of my most recent piece. With the embers of intuitive painting still warm I have carved out this floral composition – something which echoes back to my artistic beginnings. I am very much enjoying the process and trying to maintain a freshness of movement and colour as I work.
