Art Box is very pleased to welcome established artist Hope Gibbons to the stable of our talented artists. Born in 1966, Hope paints full-time in her Matakana studio on the North Island and has works held in private collections here and throughout the world. Her work pushes the boundaries of traditional painting practice and techniques- from her bright abstract works to her painterly , ethereal landscape series . A separate body of her current work also explores her interest in recycling found materials and discovering the beauty in these objects and presenting them in a new light. Hope's large works on canvas and board would suit both home and businesses alike and she is open to commissioned work so if you can't find just the piece you need then come in and have a chat and we can discuss your requirements. Welcome Hope!
The 'Woof of approval'
New puppy Daisy made her first appearance at Art Box this week! Only 12 weeks old she definitely enjoyed the stimulating environment and smells of the paintings. Her choice of art work is instinctive and she loved this new large oil painting from the 'Autumn series' by Nigel Wilson, an established South Island artist. We have several new artworks in the gallery by Nigel so we hope you can come and enjoy them soon.
