A word from gallery director Denise Bryce:
“Where do I start? This will be a very eclectic exhibition. The Port Hills, still life, nudes, myths and legends. Sixteen works in total – oils, acrylic and pencil. If you only come to one Exhibition this year, make it this one!”, says Denise Bryce.
It’s been 3 long years since local artist HAMISH ALLAN has been involved in a exhibition here. His work usually sells off a waiting list thus it seldom makes the gallery walls. He brings us 4 framed acrylic works with a distinctive Christchurch theme plus a pencil drawing so we feel rather spoilt for choice however it will be a case of the early bird gets the worm!
GEOFF WILLIAMS is the third member of this awesome trio. His last Christchurch Exhibition was back in 2007 so we are very excited to have him on-board for this show. Geoff has done the hard yards over the years and now enjoys an enviable position amongst today’s Investment Artists. His time consuming cross-hatch technique allows him to stand out amidst his peers and his battered and dusty Falcon and still life works are excellent examples. His pencil drawings include two exquisite nudes – one standing and one reclining in smart contemporary white frames.
SOFIA MINSON is a young Aucklander making a big name for herself. A portrait and landscape painter, Sofia is of Ngati Porou (Maori), Swedish, English and Irish heritage. Born in Auckland in 1984, Sofia spent much of her childhood in Samoa, Sri Lanka and China due to her father’s civil-engineering work. On returning to New Zealand as a teenager, painting enabled her to reconnect with her homeland and her mixed Maori and European heritage, as well as celebrate all of the cultural and religious diversity that she experienced overseas. Her contemporary oils explore Maori legends and myths in an either ethereal or evocative way.
