March 23rd to 25th 2018 saw the Canterbury Home Show event at the Horncastle Arena in Christchurch. Art Box Gallery and Swift Interior Designs combined with sponsorship from Resene to showcase the art and interiors at this 3 day expo. We met many new clients who loved our jewel like colour choice and as well as selling some art we we delighted to meet future clients and chat about our services. The feet were a bit sore and the voice box too at the end of it but it was great fun to share the stand and hopefully we will see some of these visitors when they build all those new homes and renovate the old ones!
Art Box Gallery® is very pleased that we can now offer work by Philip Beadle. Long before Art Box one of the earliest New Zealand paintings we bought was by Philip and we still love it. His unique style is infused with life, emotion, and light:
"Capturing the light striking a range of subject matter has always interested me whether it is the landcape, nude or cityscapes. I'm interested in our emotional response to the often fleeting memories we retain of something we have seen and how it affected us. It could be a glare on water or a pose we see for a millisecond as someone moves in every day life to touch their hair or dry themselves after a swim. I'm also concerned with creating an exciting painting surface with abstract qualities and enjoy painting in warm low evening or winter light to resolve form, colour and light into a warm companion on canvas".
