Description
The latest exhibition at number 5 studio in Lyall Bay has drawing as its central theme. Featuring artwork in a range of styles and media by Jodene Goatley, Fleur Benn, Rika Nagahata, Nikki McIvor and Helen Reynolds, ‘ink ink pencil paint’ is a stunning testament to the versatility of drawing materials and the skill of the artists.
The artists are all past exhibitors with the New Zealand Art Show and they currently have their own webpages on artshow.co.nz, the official website for The New Zealand Art Show.

Rika Nagahata, originally from Japan and currently residing in Wellington, enjoys using intricate patterns and abstract shapes combined with various types of animals as subjects in her art. She draws inspiration from a lot of things including traditional Japanese art and children's book illustrations.

Helen Reynolds, based in Eastbourne, Wellington, is fascinated by landscape systems, complexity and chaos. Her drawing practice follows a process of repeated marks, primarily in ink, that respond to pre-existing factors like the texture and flaws in paper, or clots in the ink. Over the course of her mark-making forms suggesting landscapes arise.

Jodene Goatley is completely self-taught and only started drawing in very recent years which is difficult to believe, as her delicate and detailed pencil drawings display the skill of an artist with many years of experience
Displaying a humourous side, much of her works are playful pictorial puns. Her drawings represent her innate quirks and her funny bone.

Fleur Benn is concerned about the effects that human behaviour, overpopulation and degenerating eco-systems are having on the natural habitats of the world’s animals. More than a million species face extinction and Fleur urges humankind to take responsibility for our role in this

Her choice of materials used reflects her concern for our throw-away society. “I like the fact I can transform cast-off materials into something sought- after and desirable again”.

Nikki Mcivor, originally from Wales, draws her inspiration from the beautiful Wairarapa landscapes and wildlife. Working mainly in ink pen and acrylic on paper, her influences are Art Nouveau and late 19th century Japanese prints.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
