At the Tauranga Art Gallery is a selection of 18 Anya Sinclair art works depicting bush/forest/gardens with inviting pathways so carefully created that you feel like walking into the painting.
I attended Anya’s talk last week at the gallery (highly recommend these artist talks) and spoke of the process of her artwork – she sometimes works on several at a time. Some works are small and require fine detail while her larger pieces can be more free flowing. I was surprised to hear of the amount of pink paint that was used underneath the works – but with a fresh look you could see its use.
The use of shade and light is spectacular in many of these works. Well worth a look – on until 8th February 2015. Check it out at http://www.artgallery.org.nz/exhibitions/garden-forking-paths-anya-sinclair
