Paintings by Michael Rowland
20th February 2014 - 23rd March 2014
This new vibrant exhibition by Michael Rowland explores themes of beach and treescapes as well as "a lot of things worth painting, apart from the landscape." Michael has exhibited extensively across NZ, now returning to West Coast Gallery with a show that "lends a rare intimacy to captured moments."
I just enjoy the physical act of painting. Ultramarine Blue is one of those colours that I use sparingly because it is powerful, like the ocean, and never quite does what you expect it to when mixed with other colours - Michael Rowland.
We invite you to come an enjoy his latest offerings, with images both recognizable and inspiring.
