September Exhibition Scott Drummond ‘Alps to Ocean’

scott-drummond-2013

Scott is pleased to be given the opportunity to exhibit a collection of paintings completed in the 2 years since his first exhibition at the Green Island Gallery.
In this collection, Scott has developed the elements of observation and drawing as the basis of a composition. Perspective and tonal relationships are explored as the basis of enhancing a painting while keeping the looseness of the medium at play. Several of the paintings look at regional themes and are presented as triptych works or familiar groupings with the aim of creating feelings of recognition and resonance with the viewer. A number of the paintings were completed outdoors in moments of quiet interlude from busy family life.

The theme of Alps to Ocean, reflects Scott’s enjoyment of these diverse environments with the theme of water reflected in almost all the works on show.
Scott is an artist member of the Otago Art Society and is the owner of the Green Island Veterinary Clinic Ltd

A. John V. Hart  brings to his photographic art more than 50 years of experience and achievement. He is well known in both photographic circles and in the wider community for the quality of his award winning images exhibited both nationally and internationally. When he retired from regular competitive exhibiting a few years ago, he had won more gold medals than any one else in the  history of the PSNZ National  Exhibition which has been running for over 60 years.  John has also had a high profile as both a judge and guest speaker while his work has been seen in many publications over the years. He is a longstanding member of both Photographic Society of New Zealand and Dunedin Photographic Society.

John’s particular strengths are his ability to identify interesting and unusual subjects even in unlikely situations, and to organise these in creative compositions using quality lighting that enhances the subject. A versatile photographer who has travelled extensively in New Zealand and overseas, his extensive collection includes landscape, seascape, human interest, nature, photojournalism, abstract design, and experimental processes. However, it is the natural environment which is his first love. He resides at Ocean View overlooking Dunedin’s wild and moody south coast.

John has also been a keen oil painter and follows all aspects of the creative arts, thus bring a broad perspective to his work. He is an Artist Member of Otago Art Society.

In this exhibition, John has chosen to use the wrap around canvas medium for his photographic images. He sees this as an interesting way to suggestively link his creative environments involving  film, digital technology, palette and easel.
