'Red Tape' - paintings that take a poke at bureaucracy

Red Tape
Six acrylic paintings that take a poke
at modern bureaucracy
by Alan Hodgetts

Wellington is a city of suits.

The Government is the city's biggest employer. At least one in every 10 workers in Wellington is a bureaucrat.

The theme and inspiration behind this series of six paintings came directly from working in this city.

Maybe at times the public perception of unwieldy inefficient bureaucracies and corporate fiefdoms is completely accurate?

Each of the paintings are ‘observations’ of Wellington office life.

Whether you are a paper shuffler, policy grandee, meeting professional or have an inordinately long job title, I hope these paintings make you think about modern bureaucracy. More importantly I hope they make you smile.
