The Christchurch Art Show 2017

Another year has flown by and it’s time once again for the Christchurch Art Show. I’ve downsized my commitment this year and will only be exhibiting three paintings. I’ve chosen work that I think will benefit most from being seen ‘in person’ so to speak: Any Road Will Take You There, Tasman Bay, and Curves Ahead.

Any Road Will Take You There (sold)

Tasman Bay

Curves Ahead

A new question

The Golden Hour — watercolour and gouache, 128 x 128 mm, 2017. Available.

“A piece of art is never a finished work. It answers a question which has been asked, and asks a new question.” Robert Engman

Sheep dots

Sheep – acrylic on canvas, 200 x 255 mm, 2017. Available.

Tree lines and sheep dots,
Light falling on them like snow
Even in summer.

Some vagueness

Summer Harvest – acrylic on canvas, 200 x 255 mm, 2017. Available.

“A painting requires a little mystery, some vagueness, and some fantasy. When you always make your meaning perfectly plain you end up boring people.” Edgar Degas
