+ Judge, Carolyn

Carolyn Judge Carolyn is a full time Auckland artist working from her home in St Heliers. Her inspirations are far reaching. Carolyn travels with her Nikon camera always looking for the next landscape or portrait. "It's not unusual for me to stop someone in the street to take a reference photo for a portrait, I'm always looking for the next subject to paint". The New Zealand landscape is all inspiring especially the South Island which she travels each year on her Harley Davidson, with her paint brushes in her pannier! Her husband Stuart is a keen and competent photographer that also takes landscape photos, and takes all the photos for her still life projects.

> Lander, Gillian

Painting by Gillian LanderMusician and medieval musicologist as well as painter, Gillian Lander (b.1942 – resident North Shore, Auckland) paints mainly abstracted landscape, often with an underlying political, literary, contemplative or religious reference. She particularly feels indebted to the French Impressionists of landscape such as Cezanne and Monet, New Zealand's Colin McCahon (of course), El Greco, and she loves the work of Turner. She seeks not to produce merely narrative or trendy art. Fashion is of no consequence. Her heritage is pioneer NZ and Western European - even Celtic.

> Quinlan, David

Painting by David Quinlan Art has been David's passion since his teenage years in the UK and winning a number of art prizes before leaving school. Trained as an architect he pursued a successful career in the UK before emigrating to New Zealand. In 2010 David left the corporate world and set up in a studio at Ararimu. His paintings are unashamedly both representational and evocative. He is conscious of pattern and structure in the subjects and of those spaces beyond that intrigue the onlooker. David sees his task as one of simplification and rationalisation, using colour and tonal quality to reinterpret and invite the viewer in. Painting is an exciting journey as interpretation and representation changes in response to the layering of colour and abutting of impasto oils until that point is reached which just feels so right. David's work is held in private collections in New Zealand, Australia and the UK.

> Ready, Kathy

Painting by Kathy Ready

Originating from Whangarei, Kathy completed her B.A. (Fine Arts) with Honours in Perth, Australia before relocating to Europe to focus on developing her own unique style. Kathy is now based in Auckland.

Enjoying the open interpretation that abstraction brings, Kathy works from mental snapshots of her physical and emotional environment, intuitively extracting the essence of what has been captured. She fills her canvases with broad brushstrokes, combining visceral colour and form. Each painting is built up in layers and as the layering process repeats itself, Kathy centers on making the colours come alive – the painting gaining more depth and detail until completion.
