Bee Doughty Pratt
"Inside Out" Solo Exhibition

We are are excited to invite you and your guests to the opening celebration of Bee Doughty Pratt's "Inside Out" Solo Exhibition on the 4th of October 2022. Bee will be at the opening so please come and enjoy a glass of wine with us and be amazed by the wonderful paintings that have been created for this exhibition.

Date: Tuesday the 4h of October 2022
Time: 6-8 pm
Venue: ArtSelect Gallery, 19A Osborne Street, Newmarket, Auckland

Bee Doughty Pratt
Bee Doughty Pratt is recognized for her evocative and atmospheric semi-abstract seascapes and landscapes which include imaginary vistas from the Bay of Islands to the Milford Sounds

Bee paints in oils, often working on several paintings at once, layering oils, inks and other media, rolling, brushing, scraping or dribbling for a number of weeks until each one is complete.

Bee says "Water in some form or other features in virtually every canvas I paint, often created by using different media with my oils in very fluid ways. I like it when this watery spontaneity overtakes my paintings with unintended outcomes. Lately swathes of mist seem to be predominating. Not sure why but details, structures, horizons - even whole paintings now seem to be disappearing into the mysterious mists of time.”

“Colour is also key for me . . . I love colour and try to use colour to capture atmosphere or evoke feelings rather than portray actual detail. Limiting my palette on a painting-by-painting basis, I feel, helps with this. Sometimes I happily binge on a particular colour for weeks at a time. Occasionally more vibrant colours lead my paintings into less inhibited abstraction."

Jane de France & Brent Redding 
Recent Joint Exhibition

We are are pleased to invite you and your guests to the opening celebration of Jane de France and Brent Redding's joint exhibition on the 30th of August 2022. Jane will be at the opening so please come and enjoy a glass of wine with us and be amazed by the wonderful paintings that have been created by our gifted artists. 
 
Date: Tuesday the 30th of July 2022
Time: 6-8 pm
Venue: ArtSelect Gallery, 19A Osborne Street, Newmarket, Auckland

Jane de France
Jane de France's talent was born from a strong artistic family environment. As a child she was inspired by her grandfathers paintings and her mother's drawings. She has fond memories of sketching horses with her mother from a very young age.
 
Today Janes inspiration and encouragement comes from many sources including her husband, a singer songwriter.
 
Jane is a member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and exhibits with exclusive New Zealand Galleries.
 
She is fortunate that her artwork has attracted a very positive response, sought after to appear on renowned international programme  "Colour In Your Life" by Graeme Stevenson and achieving sales both nationally and internationally.
 
Her generosity is displayed in her gift to various charities  and is the recipient of several awards.
Judges award comment - 'Roses in the Storm' is a painting of roses floating in a vaporous mist, de France's subject is caught between conflicting impressions of serenity and chaos. Yet, here is also an artist who in her finest moments is capable of manipulating paint on canvas to its best advantage.
Her awareness of tradition and her technical ability has given her the foundation from which to develop her own style as an expressionist.
 
Gorgeous compositions oscillate between modern and traditional and are described as passionate, beautiful, ethereal, opulent and dramatic.
Artist statement: Every painting gives me immense joy and satisfaction, and represents all my feelings and energy of that particular time.
 
A painting begins with a concept only, seeking subjective emotions and responses to the subject matter. This takes on its own development throughout a process of layering, rubbing back, glazing and reapplying until subtle images suggest the course of direction to each piece of artwork. My work gains richness, luminosity and depth, evoking beauty, serenity and warmth.
 
My work has developed as I have as a person. When I look over past work, I see direct influences and reasons for what I have produced. I have a sense of beauty and contentment around me now, which I feel, reflects in my art today.

Brent Redding
Brent Redding is a self-taught painter, working in oils, acrylics and pastel, with considerable variation in style, believing that the subject itself dictates a lot about the direction a painting takes.  However, this fluidity of style also results from fairly constant exploration.
 
He has always looked for pattern/design in his figurative work, and this has manifested as a series of recurring motifs (mannequins/apples/clocks/planes etc) appearing in designs circular/symmetrical/repeating.  To date the resulting work has variously shown influences of surrealism, futurism, pop art and other genres.  More recently this pattern fascination has invaded previously realistic landscape and seascape styles to create a disrupted reality.
 
Brent first exhibited in 1985 and has had solo exhibitions in various cities around New Zealand and Australia.  He has worked as a graphic artist and muralist, and teaches painting part-time.
 
He has received a few awards including winner of the Norsewear Painting Award in 1994.  In 2004 his painting, “Red, White and Blues” raised $26,000 for Cranford Hospice at the annual charity auction, a record for that event at that time..

Rachael Errington
Recent 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.

“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. “
