Julian Knap (painting in the gallery during April, Monday to Friday 11.30 – 2.30)

Work on Julian’s ‘Rome’ painting started in March 2021. This ‘still in progress’ painting will be available to view along with a selection of limited edition prints of his previous cityscapes. Julian’s first work, ‘A Trek Through Wellington’ took 3 years to paint, his last took over 4 years.

“I use as much recycled material as I can and my process involves a lot of adding and subtracting of layers, texture, soil, thinning, scraping, burning, swiping etc, until there is a feeling of emotive ‘rightness’. The result often being a multitude of trial and errors”.

Bill Burke

“For me it has always come down to the drawing – I’ve spent decades at it.” And true to his word, beneath every one of Bill’s exuberant paintings, is a carefully thought out, skilfully executed under-drawing. “It’s where I work things out – composition, lighting, perspective.”

Rachael Errington

“I’m endlessly fascinated with using different techniques to recreate colours. I love been able to squash colour across a surface”. “My work is emotive, it is all I ever want to do.”

Shane Hansen

‘The detail of my mahi, is in it’s simplicity. Keeping details to a minimum to achieve an image of high impact, depth and meaning, is a challenge, but I feel the work is stronger because of it. The term less is more, is definitely the case with my work and it doesn’t mean it is less meaningful.”

Marc Hill

“I formulate the paint from pure powder pigments, some of which are extremely rare and date back to the 1870’s. In Emergence, these pigments help create the experience of illusory shifting moods.” “The canvas is repurposed from 1960s theatre backdrops. The fine herringbone weave and aged distemper paint form the initial undertone and patina which causes it to behave quite differently from its sterile modern equivalent.”

The Art of Dr. Seuss

The Art of Dr. Seuss project offers a rare glimpse into the artistic life of this celebrated American icon and chronicles almost seven decades of work that, in every respect is uniquely, stylistically, and endearingly Seussian. Collectors can see and acquire authorised estate edition lithographs, serigraphs, and sculptures reproduced from Ted’s original drawings and paintings.
