On this page of Wellington art shows a selection of art prints by contemporary New Zealand artists. New Zealand artworks with city art that sets the focus on Wellington the capital city of New Zealand are vibrant in colour and multifaceted in recounting the city’s flair.
The examples below show artworks by Richard Ponder and his work
‘Wellington Memories’, Sarah Platt with ‘My Wellington’, ‘Oriental Bay,
Wellington’ by Bill MacCormick and a counter work ‘Oriental Bay’ by
Evelyn Page. The last example is ‘Cuba Street Cool’ by Timo Rannali.
Richard Ponder work ‘Wellington Memories’ with his use of light and dark colours with strong accentuation of yellow and orange in expressionist style draws attention. His work stands out not only in colouration but as well through his palette knife technique, which he developed during a time in Australia.
This is an example in vibrant colours in an art naive style. Sarah Platt’s painting ‘My Wellington’ also indicates with the choice of title strong bond to the location.
The painted scene by Bill MacCormick in the ‘Oriental Bay’ points out the strong relation between the bay and the frame setting buildings on a beautiful sunny day.
Oriental Bay is part of the legacy of Evelyn Page who is one of New Zealand’s most celebrated artists. Influenced by French expressionist like Degas, Bonnard and Matisse she developed and refined her unique post expressionist style over more than 7 decades of her long and successful career as an artist.
‘Cuba Street Cool’ by Timo Rannali reflects his fascination towards this place he painted in his signature style with a view through a fish-eye lens that lets onlookers views fall off to the sides of his paintings.
