Denys Watkins, Lotus Land, 2019

"The first time I came into the gallery I was on an art walk led by Frances Crombie. I was drawn to Denys’ work straight away and kept circling back to Lotus Land. After I left, I couldn’t stop thinking about the piece. The stunning colour palette, the sensitive application, the considered composition. It was sophisticated and evocative yet understated..."

Harry Culy, Seascape #3 (Blue Midday), 2014

"I knew a little bit about Harry’s work but it was a family visit to City Gallery Wellington that really piqued my interest. Seeing a room full of Harry’s seascapes in the News from the Sun exhibition was really moving. I found Harry’s images touching and tranquil..."

Caroline Faigan, Lilith (Fruit - Pears), 2019

"I was intrigued by Caroline’s exhibition and the underlying concept of Lilith — the ‘First Woman’. I loved how the cast and patinated bronze fruit were scattered purposefully across the gallery.

I had to wait for the exhibition to finish before I could bring Lotus Land home (delayed gratification!). But it gave me time to think about where it could live. Now, nestled into the corner of our lounge, Lotus Land continues to draw me in every time I look at it.

I knew a little bit about Harry’s work but it was a family visit to City Gallery Wellington that really piqued my interest. Seeing a room full of Harry’s seascapes in the News from the Sun exhibition was really moving. I found Harry’s images touching and tranquil.

Seascape #3 (Blue Midday) floats over the bed. Our room already has a view of Wellington Harbour - Harry’s seascape offers another perspective. As the light changes during the day so does the energy of the photo. The blues are accentuated during the day and turn to black at dusk, mimicking the light on the sea outside.

I was intrigued by Caroline’s exhibition and the underlying concept of Lilith — the ‘First Woman’. I loved how the cast and patinated bronze fruit were scattered purposefully across the gallery. The contrast of the organic shapes and the solidity and permanence of the bronze casting really appealed to me.

Nostalgia also played a part. My mother had given me a beautiful gold pear pendant when I was a child. So the two pears are a nod to the past (my mother) and a nod to the future (my daughter). Currently they’re sitting on the mantle holding their layered meaning quietly and beautifully."
