Rachael Errington Solo Exhibition
We are excited to invite you and your guests to view Rachael Errington's 2022 Solo Exhibition.
Rachael grew up in the middle of an English wood where she, with her brother, spent most of their time building dens and treehouses. This beginning has undoubtedly cemented Rachael’s enduring fascination with trees.
Although Rachael’s BA (Hons) is in Illustration, her studies included photography, textiles and printmaking; all of which have informed the way she paints now. After various creative endeavours and travels, including a research trip to Asia to study the influence culture has on art; Rachael relocated to New Zealand and is now absorbed in the diversity that this landscape presents.
As time has progressed, Rachael’s tree paintings have taken on a life of their own. Intricate textures of bark created with modelling paste and other ‘secret’ compounds are tactile and 3-dimensional. The colours are the depth and warmth of autumn and the fresh lime green tones of spring. Fascinated by the ever-changing play of filtered light Rachael encourages the viewer to step into the woods, to smell it, to feel it and to be soothed.
“I’m endlessly fascinated with using different techniques to recreate colours. I love being able to squash colour across a surface”.
Rachael constantly draws inspiration while walking and hiking.
“My work is emotive – It is all I ever want to do. “
The works of art on display can be previewed on this web page:

Artist Niels Meyer-Westfeld moved to New Zealand from Germany, where he had a career as a graphic artist and part time landscape artist. But once he met our birds, he couldn’t stop drawing them, which lead to an exhibition and a related book.
“Drawing birds takes patience. To really get a sense of their behaviour you can’t just draw from a photograph, you have to spend time watching.”
“My father is a passionate lepidopterist and botanist and growing up in Germany, I was lucky enough to accompany him on trips around Europe while he pursued his interest,” says Niels. “His love of nature inspired me artistically and I’ve always drawn the flora and the fauna that surrounds me.”
His creative career has been a rich one. Trained in communication design in London he went on to work with global brands like The Bodyshop, MTV, Hilton Hotels and Dr Martens!
Then he fell in love with kiwi fashion designer Deborah Sweeney which brought him to the rich natural environment of New Zealand.
The full list of images will be uploaded shortly and more information regarding dates for an opening will be announced once we are able to have people in the gallery.
Contactless viewings can be arranged by getting in touch with Ngaire on email@example.com
