2019 Featured Artist

Description

Auction Lot Details

“The Wine Capital of NZ painting, is a big and heavy piece – 2090x1220mm.  The painting explores our region from the good weather, to the beautiful beaches and landmarks.  From the vibrant colours, to the cool laidback lifestyle and everything in between.  All of these things relating to a good wine of course.

My painting process is very slow and I like to do a few other paintings while I’m working on the main one.  For this art auction, I developed a few different sketch concepts where I selected some of them together, to come up with the final visuals for this painting.

However, when I start the composition, I let the process flow naturally and things change in an organic way, with all the layers above layers of paint.  It is then that the art work starts to come to life.

This piece will make the viewer look over and over again to be able to digest everything.  It’s a visual journal where I play with typography, humour and lots of colours to represent the vibrant and funky Hawke’s Bay Wine Capital of NZ”.
