Plein Air Painter and Wire Sculptor

I love painting on location (plein air) like the Impressionist painters, so I can capture the experience and natural light in seascapes, cityscapes or landscapes of New Zealand. Clouds, water, light and shadow fascinate me. This year I travelled to the South Island enjoying a few days of painting at Milford Sound and Golden Bay while my husband played golf.

In my studio this winter I have been working on paintings inspired by the pond life right outside my window. Water lilies, pukekos, ducks, and the tranquil beauty of reflections in water will be spotlighted in my KOAST 2017 exhibition.

The show will also feature long, flowing copper wire sculptures called ‘Spirit Vessels’ which I ‘knit’ in the style of Ruth Asawa, a San Francisco artist. Each sculpture takes 40 or more hours to make. I love the delicate dance of shadows on the wall cast by these spirit vessels.

Enquiries welcomed throughout the year

Painting Sculpture

Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Interior Design, Sculpture, Furniture Design

I have been drawing and painting from memory since I was four years old. My father taught me to draw as a tool to learn reading and writing.

I have experimented with all manners of paints, dyes, stains, other mediums, metal and timber looking for ways to express my experiences of life and the world. Hence line, colour, texture, abstraction and sculpture are all tools for my creative expression

I am largely self taught but where needed, as with my print making, I am grateful for the sharing of technique and knowledge of Perry Davies, and more recently, Dan Weldon at the University of Long Island, New York at a Masters in Art workshop.

My work can be viewed at my gallery, Lakehouse Studio. Just phone for an appointment.

Ceramics Sculpture

My grandparents were potters in the 1960s and 70s, and I was always fascinated by the process of creating with clay. When I returned to live in my home town of Kerikeri in 2009, I took up ceramic practise. Initially I did classes at Northtec, and subsequently set up my own small workshop at home. I particularly enjoy throwing pots on the wheel. My work is a mixture of functional ware and sculpture. As well as using earthenware glazes I also raku fire some of my work.

I am exhibiting for KOAST at 22 Mill Lane Kerikeri.

Hugh McKechnie

Sculpture

I love taking old pieces of wood, looking for beautiful images within, and making carvings and sculpture.

I've been carving from the age of 7 years. A mallet, chisel, a piece of kauri, an old Chelsea Sugar Factory beam or an old Totara post makes me happy. I look for beauty and I am motivated by love.

I welcome you to come and see waka, fanciful sea creatures and mermaids.

During KOAST this year you'll find me at  my studio  and at The Art Place.

Looking forward to seeing you.
