Greer Clayton
"Colours of the Land"
Exhibition: 21 July - 4 August 2015
Preview: Tuesday 21st Jul 5:30 PM

Greer graduated from Elam Art School with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1996. After travelling extensively she lived and worked in London and Australia and eventually, following two successful solo shows in Sydney, returned to Auckland where she lives with her husband and two young children.

Greer has a comprehensive knowledge of her medium and uses specialty paints to create unique surface effects and textures. Diffused lines and glazing with mixed media, pumice mortar and pearlised acrylic paint are used to abstract the essence of our distinctive New Zealand landscapes. Through sensitive exploration of colour, light, form and texture her work serenely evokes the subtle variations of the natural environment. Greer’s ongoing engagement with this visual dialogue affords a kaleidoscopic range of possibilities to the artist, of which we are treated to a selection in the coming show.

“Our landscape has its own original colour and texture formed from native plants, rivers, lakes and coastlines rising to our ever changing skyline. I aim to capture some of that energy visually in my paintings.”
