ALLAN Hamish

After completing two degrees at OtagoUniversity, Dunedin New Zealand, Hamish worked as a physiotherapist before embarking on his artistic career. Initially concentrating on sculpture then changing his attention to painting.


His style is characterised by clean precise imagery often depicting stylised representational New Zealand landscapes and often incorporating iconic architecture. His interest in the relationship between the Landscape and human intervention is often present and Hamish endevours to portray this in a contemporary manner. He is fond of looking through his rose tinted glasses at times gone by.

Recently Hamish has produced some portraiture works which adds a further dimension to his work on offer. His work has a feeling of space and a sense of the serene created by leaving out unnecessary imagery creating a stripped back essential image. Taking time to render a seamless drift of tone and a conscious pushing and pulling of perspective providing an intriguing and rewarding visual experience. Hamish works from his home in Christchurch New Zealand where he lives with his partner and two children.

Recently Hamish has won the Christchurch Yellow Pages art award 2007 and 2008. In 2009 Hamish's painting "Circa 1937" was selected to be included in and be the cover art for " 12 New Zealand Artists" 2010, A New Zealand calender produced by Craig Potton publishing. Hamish has 10 new paintings available in his solo exhibition at the BryceGallery opening on 20 Oct 2010 and running to 7 Nov 2010.
