Vincent Duncan's 2014 exhibition 'Vincent!'

Vincent Duncan's 2014 Exhibition

Vincent Duncan's 2014 exhibition 'Vincent!' runs from June 3 - 22 at The Kiwi Art House Gallery

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.

The players weren't flown into the capital for a parliamentary function... More>>

Francis Cook: Weekend SportzMania! All Blacks! Netball!

Sports were on all weekend. I normally don’t write about sports but with Richie McCaw tipped to be the next Prime Minister, and Colin Craig arguing sports are almost as important as politics, I thought “what better time to start!” More>>
