Exhibition- 9th October to 5th November (Realism Oil and Acrylic paintings on canvas.) Our next exhibition is by Brendon Pooley who lives at Waihi Beach. Brendon has recently won third prize, with his piece ‘Idyllic Waihi Beach’ in the STAEDTLER 2023 Artist of the Year competition. The judges were very impressed, “A truly beautiful piece of artwork”.
With a background in carpentry, engineering, and music, Brendon Pooley views landscapes from a practical perspective. Light and reflections are important to him as they add mood, mystery, and an element of tranquil serenity.
As a keen scuba diver, he has been inspired by the ocean’s beauty. With the assistance of photography on and under the water (around the Hauraki Gulf and Taranaki’s Port) this has also contributed to his creations.
Brendon has created scenes ranging from the Far North to Otago, using multiple mediums.
He loves painting because it’s an expression and extension of himself, sharing with others this amazing creation of the tranquil ruggedness in which we live.
