About

Geckotui Gallery  
I live in rural Northland, New Zealand with cows, pukekos, tuis, magpies, grey herons, wild ducks and look out over green paddocks onto native bush and many trees. A visit to my artist nephews studio in Victoria, Australia had me drooling at all the colors, salivating at the paints and pastels and I was itching to get my hands on all his art materials. As I got stuck in and sploshed paint, pastel and oil crayons across the paper I was hooked and haven't stopped since. Art History at University hadn't prepared me for the hands on stuff - I couldn't put down the materials and returned from Australia with my suitcase full of art and havent stopped since.

The earlier chicken man photos
As promised here is the earlier sculpture with the first paper covering there were two more layers on before this one covering the chicken wire base.

What is the mystery sculpture ?
OK - well, here he is ! Finally, the finished version - after several transitions from harlequin, aborigine on a corroborri - he turned out to be a Commando ! Painting him up in camoflage colours was almost worth all the initial drama of a major battle with constantly snarling chicken wire &being stuck to the workbench with paper mache. I undercoated the sculpture in multicolours and the finishing touch has a touch of gold mixed in with the camoflage colour.

The chicken wire sculpture !!!!
Recently I've been doing a chicken wire sculpture of a person in motion - haaaaahhhhhh If you think this was easy, forget it ! I have been doing this since the beginning of time I reckon I thought it'd be a piece of cake just sketch it out, cut out the chicken wire, cover it with paper mache and zip it over with some paint to my taste..
