Scott McFarlane is known primarily for his dark, powerful, spiritual landscapes but is equally competent in the ceramic discipline.Since graduating with honours from Otago School of Art in 1993, Scott has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand. From 1997 - 98 was Artist in Residence at the Rita Angus Cottage, Wellington. Originally from Wellington, Scott has spent time in Northland and Dunedin - the dramatic landscape of both islands influencing his painting. He now lives and works in Northland.
Garry Currin's work
is …"made major by a scope that encompasses not only the
edgy physical attributes of its subject, but also the
metaphorical implications, so that Currin actually captures
the power, the darkness and the malevolence of the very
thing that he paints."
Garry Currin's work is held in significant collections throughout New Zealand.
