Clare uses colour to create a visual environment that absorbs us into them. The paintings refuse to stay still and respond to light and emit a colourful glow that expresses her impulse to convey what she sees and feels with texture, colour and form onto canvas.
Her abstracted paintings of Landscapes from an aerial perspective show common features we see in our rural land.
Clare discusses our need for water through rivers, falling rain, irrigation and water storage revealing our landscape in patterns and stripes
Raymond Herber lives and works at Iron Ridge Quarry Sculpture Park nestled in the hills overlooking North Canterbury's Waipara Valley. He was born in Christchurch in 1971, one of seven children from a European immigrant family of artists.
Steel and stainless are Raymond's medium of choice, and his work encompasses small scale intimate studies of moments suspended in time, whimsical interactive and kinetic pieces as well as large scale private and public sculpture.
