Current Solo Exhibition
from 12 January 2021
J K Reed - "Art By The Sea"
J K Reed is regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading landscape water-colourist, with works sold through-out Australasia and the United States of America.
We are pleased to announce a solo exhibition Art by the Sea by artist John Keith Reed D.F.A.
Opening on Tuesday the 12th January 2021 from 6-8 pm at ArtSelect Gallery 19 Osborne Street, Newmarket, Auckland.
New Zealand Water-colour Artist JK Reed is regarded as one of New Zealand’s leading landscape water-colourist, with works sold through-out Australasia and the United States of America.
In 1996 Keith Reed was sponsored by Fisher’s Fine Arts of Christchurch to undertake a painting and study trip to England, France and Venice. As a result his paintings now show a variety of influences from well-known tourist locations that include fishing villages, city scenes and cafe’s, Venice waterways and local New Zealand landscape.
Born in England and emigrating to Dunedin in 1954, Keith Reed attended school at Otago Boys’ High. When only sixteen he held his first exhibition in which three-quarters of the works displayed were sold.
He moved to Christchurch in the early 1960s to attend the University Of Canterbury School Of Fine Arts, attaining his Diploma of Fine Arts in 1968. During this time he held many exhibitions through-out the South Island.
In 1969 Keith Reed started teaching, and after a year’s leave of absence in 1974 to visit galleries overseas, returned to develop a successful career as an artist.
His calendar series, depicting street scenes around the world are held by such notable persons as President Bill Clinton, NZ. Prime Minister Helen Clark, Jenny Shipley and are displayed in numerous galleries in New Zealand and overseas.
The abstract works developed from Art School influence and a keen interest in figurative and Cubistic painting. The medium of oil paint was a contrast to watercolour during those early years.
Rachael Errington’s first painting, when she was just three years of age, was a brightly coloured crayon picture on the freshly painted white hallway.
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.

Patterson reduces figures and musicality into arithmetical diagrams, breaking up and re-assembling them into abstracted and unexpected formations. At the same time, he maintains a figure recognisable amongst the new order, although viewed from a new aesthetic. All the while miraculously combines balance and movement with a glorious range of colour.Get in touch with ArtSelect Gallery if you’d like to find out about their available pieces.
Niels Meyer-Westfeld is one of our most successful artists, he flings the word nature around a lot. But that’s as it should be for a man obsessed with the natural world around him…natures designs offer an endless stream of inspiration and for that reason I will never get tired observing our beautiful birds of New Zealand.
All original artwork is also available as a limited edition of 25 as a fine art archival giclee print.
