This blog details news and events from my two major passions, art and white water kayaking. I may include posts about my other active interests including tramping, rock-climbing, tennis, exploring, snorkelling, house renovation, entrepreneurial ideas and various other hybrid activities. I welcome comments and look forward to receiving your feedback.


Pop-Art prints for Orbit Gallery, New York

I have just completed a set of four limited edition pop-art prints for Orbit Gallery in New York. The gallery owner has expressed an interest in exhibiting them early this year. See the example below.


Art Attack Gallery, Dubai

I now officially have a gallery in Dubai. You can see my work online at Art Attack gallery.

Now I will wait and see what the reaction to my work is!


Kaeo Primary School Great Art Exhibition Auction

About four months ago I donated a matted print titled 'Hey Diddle' to Kaeo Primary School's Great Art Exhibition Auction.

This had a very satisfying outcome! Have a look at the PDF here.

Here is a jpg of the print:


Christmas Exhibition Update

Here is some of the work I will have in the Christmas Exhibition, including two new cubist paintings of local scenes, a river monoprint of the Ruamahanga River system and a pop-art print titled The Gate.

Note that the exhibition is a group show and features small artworks. It opens Thursday 27 November at 5pm at Exhibitions Gallery, 154 Featherston St, Wellington. I'd love to see you there.

Christmas Exhibition - Exhibitions Gallery Wellington

Coming up at Exhibitions gallery in Wellington is the Christmas Exhibition featuring smaller works by myself and several others. The show opens 27 November at 5pm and will run through to Christmas. There will be wine and food on offer. I will have my new pop-art prints, two new cubist paintings and a couple of my River monoprints in the show. It will be an interesting selection of work, so come and check it out!

I have just sent five prints off to my Dubai Gallery. Now it's just a matter of waiting and seeing how they are received. When I've finished working on the Christmas Exhibition, I will start work on a set of pop-art prints for the New York Gallery that sounds keen to take my work.


Gallery in Dubai

Four galleries in Dubai wanted to show my work. I have selected a gallery and the dealer has chosen to buy five limited edition prints outright! Unheardof!! I am about to send the two New York prints, the Palm Jumeirah print and two New Zealand prints. I just hope that Dubai doesn't suffer an economic crash of the same magnitude as its meteoric growth spurt! Art markets seem to be some of the first to suffer in recessions. My next goal is to produce work for the Exhibitions Gallery Christmas exhibition which will run through November. I will hopefully have completed a couple of cubist Wellington based paintings as well as a couple of local river dendritic monoprints and some limited edition pop-art prints - a varied mix! I will post more specific details of this show soon.
