Graham Moeller - Landscapes

Graham Moeller landscapes give his audience the impression the artist personally relates to  New Zealand's wilderness. Looking at his oils you can almost feel the crisp mountain air of Aoraki Mt Cook, or the sultry warmth of the North.  This exhibition showcases his best recent work, split between North and South Island landscapes. The artist's favourite places, from the Coromandel, the central plateau and the majestic mountains of the South. Graham paints from his Taupo studio gallery. You can find him in the shopping centre, painting in his window, with his gallery downstairs. He has painted full time for seven years and gradually built a reputation as both New Zealand visitors and overseas tourists have discovered his work.

Artist's Statement: "If a picture paints a thousand words then I hope that my landscapes reflect a little of me and my love of New Zealand's wonderful scenery and often, tranquil moods. Although I am a totally self taught artist, studying graphic design at Art school in Wellingtin in the 60s taught me composition, attention to detail, and the effects of light, all of which now so greatly influence my style.

All my life I have been acutely aware of my surrroundings and consequently see new and exciting views. I am grateful for the wonderful gift of successfully transposing these observations onto canvas, using oil as my medium. I not only get tremendous satisfaction from painting the landscapes but also derive much pleasure from meeting people from all over the world who share my amazement at the beauty of our magnificent and pristine scenery. To date I have paintings now hanging in private collections in New Zealand, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, Canada, USA, England, Scotland, Wales, Sweden, France, Germany, Switzerland, Lichenstein, Monaco  and South Africa."

Four Eyes! - Colour Spies!

Vincent Duncan and George Thompson

You've heard of Five Eyes spies, now George Thompson and Vincent Duncans' four eyes are colour spies, spotting outrageous combinations of colours and creating new spectalular colour paintings that are beyond what either has done before.  Even long time admirers of these two top Wellington artists will be in for a treat and a surprise as both head in new directions,  in what should be seen as  ground breaking exhibition for both. George Thompson is experimenting with textured canvas (spot the artist's old jeans cut up and sewn onto the canvas in 'A Harbour View' and his most edgy work yet, a cross between abstract and impressionism. Vincent Duncan is also experimenting; taking his wild fun side to create crazy Wellington street scenes in acrylic, a departure from his usual heavily textured oils he is famous for. Vincent is not usually a painter of abstracts but his 'Planets' series shows how versatile and great an artist he is. Vincent Duncan is probably Wellington's most popular artist and these paintings show why.

Shadow in the Bush

Heimler and Proc

Gabriel Heimler and Anna Proc's tribute to first nations peoples, particularly those few still living in symbiosis with nature; they who live as we once did thousands of years ago. What their future holds. How we can still recognise a part of them and their lives in ourselves when we enter our own bush. Who hasn't thought they've seen the fleeting form of a human in the dark shadows of the trees and felt as our ancestors did.

June 4 - 22 2014


Wellington's hugely popular Vincent Duncan with over 20 new happy and positive uniquely Vincent interpretations ofWellington.

To see the exhibition catalogue please click here

Vincent Duncan has been painting fulltime since the late 1990s. He has developed into one of the most popular, if not the most popular, Wellington artist. Vincent only shows his work in Wellington and the city is reflected in many of his paintings. His technique of applying oil paint straight from the tube and mixing on the canvas with a palette knife is unusual but not at all unique, two other well know Wellington artists use the same approach. The bold colours, heavy texture and a varnish finish gives Vincent's paintings that extra impact and they sparkle under sunlight or good artificial lights, but the reason they have been so popular is their humanity. From his lovers to boats with personalities to city and harbour scenes that dance and sway with life, Vincent's art pulsates with humour, fun and the joy of life.


'Watching Fishers Fish!' by Vincent Duncan

February 14 - March 9 2014

'Sea Surge!' by Samuel Earp


Sam Earp was born in Guernsey, brought up in England and worked in the USA before moving to New Zealand in 2009. Sam might not fit the perceptions of a traditional artist, his profession is arborist, entailing climbing and chopping trees, his interests include his electric guitar and heavy metal music but above all he loves painting the sea in motion.

Sam loves painting the sea in her most disturbed and angry moods, capturing subtle sunlight playing on water and the energy of the waves. I first saw his work by chance, when he had a studio  in Dixon St.   Last year a new job took him to Auckland and now he has a strong collection of work covering scenes from Auckland's west coast beaches to Wellington and the South Island. Painting is Sam's passion and it is very exciting to help him travel to the next stage with his first solo exhibition.  - Alan Aldridge

 Opening Night 6pm Friday 14 February 2014 at The Kiwi Art House Gallery 288 Cuba St

Rob McGregor's


'Faces of Eve Project'

Exploring the influence of women's magazines. 

Opening Friday 29 November at the KAH pop up Gallery 86 Lambton Quay

Artist's statement

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.”Shakespeare: from ‘As You Like It’

Faces of Eve is a series of mixed media paintings that focus on the manner in which magazines influence, or try to influence, not only what women should buy, but also what they should wear, how they might behave and the faces they should wear. Magazine articles tell about beauty products, fashion items, film stars, royalty, healthy living, drinks, men and sex, while horoscopes advise on work, leisure and relationships. A few headings from one magazine: New season Look; Fashion Stakeout; Fashion Icon; Frock Forecast; Hangover Sex; Obsession with Calvin Klein; The Who the What the Wear the Hair; Best Sex Ever; Beauty Blog. Faces are enhanced with paints and preparations for lips, eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, skin and hair. Models model ways to look: imperious, haughty sophisticated or like ‘the girl next door.’ or sexy with pouts and sunglasses.

Jane Hyder

Art and Literature writer Hamish Clayton wrote of Jane Hyder, "For Jane Hyder art and faith come together in the same place. Working in fauve-expressionist style, her paintings draw on highly poetic, richly illustrative imagery."

Jane Hyder's exhibition is a series of strikingly colourful and exuberant paintings and prints inspired by the Italian Garden

Gabriel Heimler and Anna Proc

Gabriel Heimler is well known for his mural 'The Wall Jumper' on the Berlin Wall, a painting that along with work from other artists turned a section of the Berlin Wall into an historical monument, and the last piece of the Berlin Wall still standing. In Wellington Gabriel with partner Anna Proc created 'The Mover' mural on the Museum Hotel. 'The Mover' celebrates the engineering feat of moving the Museum Hotel on rails in the 1990s. Gabriel used the same character in 'The Mover' as for the 'Wall Jumper' back in 1989, to symbolically link Wellington with Berlin, New Zealand with Europe.  You can see images of these two murals on Gabriel Heimler's gallery page here

The Art Partnership artists are, Bruce Luxford, Morag Stokes, Sandra Wong, Miranda Woollett, Chris Partington, and Rosalie Jurczenko.

Kinetics - Solo Exhibition by Ilma Mitchell

Sept 20 Oct 11 2009

Wellington artist Ilma Mitchell’s latest solo exhibition features striking, abstract acrylics on canvas. On this occasion - using a dramatic limited palette, Ilma has let her ongoing passion for colour and texture “run away with her”.

Ilma Mitchell is a Wellington artist with great amounts of creative energy and these paintings are an exploration and expression of her creativity.  Ilma has several times and under three different names reinvented herself. She has painted and experimented with traditional landscapes and three distinct styles of abstracts of which 'Kinetics' is the latest. Here her work has exploded with line colour and texture in such an expressive style that you can just tell these paintings comes from deep within her.

She hopes you’ll enjoy viewing this quite radical departure from her previous style as much as she has enjoyed creating the images.   

The opening is Sunday 20 September at the Kiwi Art House Gallery from 4pm

Rob McGregor is a well known artist from Tauranga  whose colourful depiction of NZ life has a wide appeal. His paintings have been spotted in many settings, as diverse as Parliament Buildings to pubs. Rob Describes himself
I am a full-time painter living in Mt Maunganui. Bold, bright canvases depict the New Zealand I love: its landscapes, people and their leisure-time pursuits. NZ coast, flora, beach and seascapes, sunbathers, nudes, café scenes, music and yachts provide content for my canvases.

Reproductions of my paintings have proved extremely popular: many thousands have been purchased by New Zealanders and visitors to the country, who have no doubt felt associations with the same things that interest me.”


'The Fine Art of Conversation' Exhibition

“The Fine Art of Conversation” series is inspired by the paintings of Renoir and Degas and reinterprets their 19th century scenes of everyday life in a modern guise.
