All proceeds from this exhibition go to the charity Bellyful Wellington South.

Bellyful is a registered charity run by volunteers and is funded purely on the fundraising efforts.

Bellyful volunteers deliver free meals to families with newborn babies and families, with young children, who are struggling with illness. Particularly those lacking a good support network.
Having a few meals delivered by a friendly face can be a real sanity-saver.

Joe McMenamin is a painter and printmaker and the flowing organic patterns that ripple through his works have won him a following throughout New Zealand. Joe has a bachelor of media arts from the Waikato Institute of Technology. He teaches art part time at Naenae College in Lower Hutt, Wellington.

In Joe’s latest series of nautical themed screen prints his detailed drawings are screen printed as a ship and anchor or a deep sea diver. Joe then carefully drops coloured powdered dye pigment in the midst of the image, and the colours splash across the print, making each one bright, exquisite and unique. He finishes the print with some hand drawn pattern to represent the water.

Joe’s recent paintings depict a range of subjects painted directly onto the medium of plywood - it is a natural medium that attracts him and he makes the frames for each piece by hand. He is interested in New Zealand native birds. Joe skilfully paints these birds directly onto the plywood, which gives them a raw quality and showcases his photorealistic painting technique. He often applies a layer of Danish oil overtop, which brings out the grain of the wood and the jewel-like paint colours.

At the end of 2015 Joe released the NZ Native Birds adult colouring book. It was a great success with the first edition of 500 books selling out in 2 weeks.
