MARK WOOLLER SMALL WORKS COLLECTION
Mark Wooller produces oil paintings in a semi surrealist style featuring the New Zealand bush and landscape. Wooller's works have become known for their unique blend of landscape and text.
Wooller has released a suite of small collectible works with a focus on Auckland suburbs and Northland locations. While these works may be small in size; they don't spare on detail nor relatable local content.
Starting from 20 x 20cm in size, the collection features scenes of Mt Hobson, Horotiu Bay (Queen St River), Waiatarau (Freemans Bay) and Te Toangaroa (Parnell). The works combine densely bush clad geographical forms that remind us of an earlier time in New Zealand history with labels, signposts and lot numbers.

A SPRING MORNING STROLL | RICHARD PONDER
Richard Ponder creates rich and textural oil paintings that freely play with light and colour, using his distinctive knife painting technique.
Ponder's latest large scale canvas invites the viewer to wander through a softly lit, misty morning garden. Watch the light spill onto the path, lighting the way for your slow journey through this visual spectacle of ever budding spring flowers.
Measuring an impressive 2 metres in width Misty Morning in the Garden is a significant canvas and a great example of Richard Ponder's rich, tactile and sculptural surfaces. A statement piece that brings the sensory experience of the garden indoors.
