Milan Mrkusich ONZM, has been recognised as one of New Zealand’s most important artists.

 

He was a pioneer of abstract painting and made an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZM) in 1997 for his services to painting.

 

Mrkusich won the commission to design a significant art installation at Te Papa Tongarewa, Museum of New Zealand, with a colourful array of enamel-on-glass panels, two storeys high and running the length of the building along Cable Street, installed ready for the museum’s grand opening in 1998.

 

Mrkusich was one of ten inaugural Icon Award recipients from the Arts Foundation of New Zealand in 2003.

 

Milan Mrkusich died on the 13th of  June 2018 at the age of 93.

 

We do not expect another exhibition of this scale to be presented for public display in the future so all discerning collectors, both new and established, should avail themselves of this opportunity to see some of the influences that led to many of the works produced by Milan Mrkusich over the years.

Rachael Errington
Previous Solo Exhibition

We are excited to invite you and your guests to meet Rachael and celebrate the opening of her latest solo exhibition. 

Date: Tuesday the 1st of June 2021
Time: 6-8 pm
Venue: ArtSelect Gallery, 19A Osborne Street, Newmarket, Auckland

Artist Bio
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. 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”. My work is emotive – It is all I ever want to do. “

Previous Exhibition
Job Klijn - Evidence of Change

We are pleased to invite you and your guests to meet Job Klijn and celebrate the opening of his Solo Exhibition.


Date: Tuesday the 4th May 2021
Time: 6-8 pm
Venue: ArtSelect Gallery, 19A Osborne Street, Newmarket, Auckland.


Artist Bio
Job Klijn’s paintings are emotional and atmospheric, smouldering even, with an underlying sense of danger and darkness, while remarkably retaining a sense of light or shelter – a calm region for his figures and the viewer to inhabit.


Job often alludes to an underlying fear and insecurity ruling his work due to his lack of formal training in painting, but also recognises that this plays to the style and final look of his pieces.


Job states that he “starts his paintings by trying to create a ‘background’, a rough sky, a portrait of ‘weather’ that reflects a mood or sense of moodiness that eventually leads to a more specific idea in what direction to take it”.


“I use as much recycled material as I can and my process involves a lot of adding and subtracting of layers, texture, soil, thinning, scraping, burning, swiping etc, until there is a feeling of emotive ‘rightness’. The result often being a multitude of trial and errors”.


This penchant for brooding turbulence and turmoil as a subject, is in the end, tempered by a residual warmth and richness achieved by the process of the art making. Attentive labour and restoration, building complex layers and beauty.


Sometimes, depending on the works ‘idea’, Job will add a figure.
“I sketch endlessly from collected images that show poses I like to achieve, often mathematically re calculating the proportions of limbs and bodies to marry them together in one final sketch”.


Not all of the ‘moodscapes’ include a human form but most do. Job’s figures exude purposefulness, not seeming overwhelmed in their surrounds. They are clean cut, well dressed, stylish even, clearly comfortable and in control in their environs.


Materials from another past with a promising future!

Brent Redding Upcoming Exhibition Image

Previous Solo Exhibition
Brent Redding

This is Brent Redding's first solo exhibition at ArtSelect Gallery and we are excited to invite you to the opening celebration of this exhibition.

See more of Brent's works of art on this page:

https://www.artselect.gallery/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.

Ngaire & J K Reed.jpg
J K Reed, By The Sea.JPG

Previous Solo Exhibition
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.
