Information on artists
Brought up in rural Marlborough, Rebecca Rose lives and works in Titirangi, Auckland, and her work is represented throughout New Zealand and internationally. Her first works were figurative, often made of concrete. More recently Rebecca has been working with metal, creating landscape sculpture, which resonates in meaning with the natural environment. She takes her inspiration from nature, be it a walk along the beach or through the forest. Rebecca feels a strong interconnection with all things in nature and mankind and seeks to express this in her work. Her work is not dark or full of hidden concepts but light, accessible in meaning and form, provoking interest and contemplation. Modern engineering technologies of software design and laser cutting have allowed artists scope to create larger metal pieces with seemingly intricate patterns with accuracy impossible by hand.

The work of Doug Neil speaks of “truth to materials”, a reconciliation of artistic pursuit and the intrinsic quality of the rock he carves. The New Zealand landscape offers marble, granite and volcanic basalt produced millennia ago, revealing fiery origins, compressed, warped and then eroded by wind and water. You do not need to be a geologist to admire nature’s beauty. Familiar patterns appear in the landscape whether it is rivers, creeks, lakes, cliff, mountain or coastline.
