Capital's "ignored" buildings and “buildings of worship” inspire two Wellington artists

An appreciative eye for the special characteristics of some of Wellington's "ignored" buildings is behind an exhibition by Wellington painter Paul Hardy.

Entitled "Slices of Wellington", the collection of acrylics on canvas depicts what Hardy describes as Wellington's "un-noticed, ignored or forgotten" buildings or structures.

"I've painted slices; not the whole buildings” says Hardy. He's always loved old buildings, and appreciated architectural styles and what he calls the "art of architecture."

It has taken him almost three years to produce the 9 or ten images in the exhibition, as he has to balance his painting with work. "When I come home at night after a day's work I'm knackered, quite frankly, and the last thing I feel like doing is painting. So it takes a long time to produce enough work to stage an exhibition."

Walking the streets of Wellington became an obsession with Hardy's fellow Wellington artist Lorraine Tarrant, leading to an intrigue in the many and varied places of worship dotted around our capital.

“I like that most people will have visited these places, in them attending functions,services, funerals,concerts, christenings and weddings. ” she says.

A prolific artist, Tarrant uses her own quirky style to produce a series of twenty original works called “Worshipping Wellington”, depicting some of our local Wellington treasures.
