Barbara Ruhdorfer

When I first came to New Zealand from Germany, to work as a full time artist, I was greatly impressed and inspired by the rugged but beautiful landscape. Shaped by seismic and volcanic activity, and the eroding forces of wind and water, I loved to represent the landscape I saw.
 
Increasingly I have become interested in the effect of erosion on stretches of rock, tree trunks, and mud flats. The patterned reliefs, structures and monochrome colours I found, though essentially natural, have steered me towards an exploration of abstract compositions.
 
While a lot of my art still is reminiscent of the natural phenomena described, I have now entered a phase where I want to find abstracted ways of expressing more of my own inner landscape.
If abstraction means a ‘taking away’ of something, in this case the realistic depiction of landscape, whether seen from a distance or with close up detail, something else needs to be added.
 
What I am exploring now are pictorial ways to let the mind rest. To blot out all the outer distractions of our busy lives, if only for a while. We can turn to nature to find stillness of mind, and relaxation. Or we can look at a piece of artwork that embodies balance in form and colour, and let it unfold its subconscious effects.

Alicja Gear Biography

Alicja responds to a sense of atmosphere and play of light across the landscape with her expressive oil paintings. Capturing those moments of delight at the way the light dances across the landscape.

The combination of the large gestural marks and bold use of colour leads you on a journey into the landscape whilst still exploring the nature of the medium. Handling the paint, the selection and laying it on, a cumulation of single marks which coalesce into a whole.

Alicja has studied drawing and painting informally in London and New Zealand.​

Exhibition Statement:

Light

Noun; The vehicle which enables us to see.

This series of work examines the role light has in creating both positive and negative space within a scene. The light itself creates a positive effect by allowing something to be seen but it also becomes a negative space as a flat reflective surface between the rocks, mudflats or through the silhouette of trees. Light is in a constant state of change, particularly apparent during the transitional time at the beginning and end of the day.

These scenes are impressions of mere moments. Moments in which the breath is released, and we are present. Our demanding lives fall away as we observe the play of light on the water. The changing colours in the clouds and awe at the wonder of our beautiful world. Then consider the time that that moment takes, and in reality it is miniscule. In the cumulation of moments what is really important? Our existence is merely a blip.

Maico Camilo Biography

Maico Camilo, was born in Brazil 1982, and left his home country to pursue his education at an early age. At age 23, (2005) Maico decided to make a new move to New Zealand and subsequently met his partner and now husband Lyndon Bray. Due to his partner’s job, Maico has travelled extensively up into Europe, Asia, South America and Oceania. After almost 10 years away from NZ, Maico Camilo and Lyndon  are finally back living in New Zealand with their baby “dog” Harry.

He has lived and worked for an extended period of time in New Zealand and Australia, consequently these experiences have opened him up to the different cultures and environments that have helped him explore the larger questions we all face in life: our reason for being.

Camilo has set about exploring his own journey through his art, challenging his own paradigms and his reason for being and not being afraid to explore different vocabularies and communication forms through his art.  As a result, he is challenging us all to confront the obvious, in terms of what is going on around us. 

PRIVATE COLLECTIONS:

Maico Camilo's artworks are now held in collections all over the World such as: Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, England, France, Spain, Amsterdam, Italy, USA, Hong Kong and Japan.
