New photographs from Craig Potton – a moody Otago hills and Filmy Ferns
Welcome to our Autumn update where we share with you what’s new here at the gallery …
We have two stunning new photographs from Craig Potton – a moody Otago hills and Filmy Ferns – a gorgeous pop of fresh green which would look so crisp in a bathroom or kitchen!
We are also very proud to be showing new works from Holly Zandbergen and Michael Dell. Details below and definitely worth a visit to the gallery to view in person.
April saw us adding to Manuka Hospital’s growing collection of beautiful Craig Potton images (and another from contemporary New Zealand artist Karl Maughan!) It’s wonderful seeing these uplifting images of nature in this setting – bringing the outside in, providing calm and contemplation. Thank you to PCL, Nelson City Framers and Gow Langsford Gallery for helping create this installation of works for the enjoyment of the hospital’s patients, staff and visitors.

“The schist rock of inland Otago creates distinctive rolling highlands with concordant ridges that are clothed in native alpine tussock grasses which give off a golden hue. Individual tussock plants may live for over 300 years and are unique to New Zealand. Such scenes seem to demand panoramic compositions to express the forever rolling feel of these wonderful places.” – Craig Potton

“New Zealand is unusual for its sheer abundance, range and variety of ferns, and being an ancient form of botanic expression they have often been replaced in other countries by the effusion of flowering species that developed later on the evolutionary tree. Their relative simplicity and highly symmetrical form create a beautiful monochrome of green.” – Craig Potton
