Allan Batt - Sanctum Viritis
New to Remuera Gallery :  Sanctum Viritis by Allan Batt

Born in 1960 Allan Batt was raised and educated on the West Coast of the South Island. Allan is an entirely self taught artist painting on canvas using oil paints, applied in a meticulous fashion, layering thin glazes of colour to achieve a photo realistic effect.
Allan has a deep love of the environment, this has inspired recent new work, from architectural flora in all its diversity and colour to close up detail of rugged coastlines. He tries to capture a sense of tranquility and beauty in many of his paintings. In essence “natural unspoiled New Zealand” – ( courtesy of  http://westcoastart.vc.net.nz/artist/allanbat/About/)

Dene Hancock - AlphonseDene Hancock- Cleo

Introducing emerging bronze artist : Dene Hancock

‘Alphonse and Cleo’ are the quirky mythical creation of bronze artist and AUT anatomy lecturer Dene Hancock.

The artist’s background in anatomy has enabled her to generate works influenced by forensic reconstruction of the human skull and busts of the human form. In Alphonse and Cleo we see a playful  transmogrification of the mid twentieth century human with the body of a standing bird.

Phillip Maxwell

Artist Philip Maxwell is based in Port Chalmers, a small but busy Port town located 15 minutes from the centre of Dunedin.
The local environment and beautiful scenery of the area is the inspiration for most of his artwork.

I feel it is important for me to base my work around where I live and how I feel about a particular place … and while my work originates from what I experience and know, over time my work is also increasingly becoming more about a deliberately realized reality that is more concerned with visual arguments than factual reality.

Philip Maxwell has held many highly successful solo exhibitions and has also contributed to numerous group shows. His work can be found in both public and private collections here in New Zealand and many private collections overseas.  (courtesy of the artist)
