Mercury Bay Art Escape Studio Tour

Totally love prepping for the studio tour coming up, alllows me to be free and having to work fast is actually somethng I enjoy, the pressure of ‘just doing it, working to a timeline’ makes me take risks I perhaps wouldnt when I have ‘all the time in the world’
My biggest ‘fear’ with my art…. getting stuck. *insert horror face* I dont fear having a ‘block’, dont mind that at all, just the Uinverse telling me to have a break & look at things in a different way,…. but simply not changing, not evolving, ,,, doing the same thing over and over- slow death to me. This is why you will see I have many styles, and I am always trying different things, using dfferent mediums, swinging from one thing to another, and then dipping back and forth, mixing it up. To be painting the same way & style that I was 2 years ago, 5 yrs ago, actually gives me a clenching feeling , a tightness in my belly lol! This Gemini nees constant change, and a feeling of lightness, and movement (its an AIR sign after all 🙂 !!) Dont get me wrong, I LOVE my fine detailing, native fusion of marks, symbols, patterns all flowing together as one, … my oceanic, nature, cultural, cosmic, themes,…. for me, to stretch & grow is about throwing somehting onto the canvas id never normally do /use,.. then seeing how that FEELS, good? not quite right? indifferent? I wait for the passion, the adrenalin rush, then I know Im onto something and suddenly its all going so fast I literally cant stop it.

This deck was created intuitively, both the art & the words came ‘in the moment’
with very little alteration or editing.
Left ‘raw’ I felt they had a power that was more pure

Native & Real, Bright & Energising

I think this has to be one of my favourite pieces I have ever created. It has a vibrancy, an energy about it,.. its so alive and raw. I have reluctantly let it go to a gallery , but I wont be disappointed it it doesn’t sell (lol!) Id love to keep it 🙂
Its a mixed media piece: collage, ink, acrylic.

Another Large Commission 

This 4 piece painting , 2m x 2m is off to the Bahamas once done.

Each panel is 1m square.

My buyers live on a canal , and wanted all the colours of the water and sky. Their inspiration was my ‘Legend’ series.

I’m using acrylics and inks, and am about 3/4 way through at this point.

Faces by Reina Cottier

ALways wanted to paint faces… so, I decided, since it was a bit frightening,
to just go for it and painted one a day for 5 days. I went at it in a hurry,
because I didn’t want to think about it too much, didn’t want to
ponder each move, each brushstroke, I just wanted it to be a really free process.
I used inks, acrylics, and other mixed media. Loving the texture with tissue paper too.
Sometimes I blurred my eyes, or used my left hand,  it was really good to ‘let go’ and
not be preoccupied with what I think a face should look like, this is what was
holding me back before. These 3 are still in process, but will be available once finished.

I’m Back! – Updates June 2017

Hi all,
back from holiday, went to Peru for a couple of weeks, including a few days in the Amazon/Jungle, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and La Paz, Bolivia. INCREDIBLE trip, epic adventure!

Here is a short vid of updates. Ive been painting for a few days, showing latest work, mediums used and mentioning the fabulous brushes I bought last year, and now on my second set.

PERU & BOLIVIA- art inspiration

I have just returned from 2 weeks in Peru, and 2 days in Bolivia. An epic adventure, non stop experiences, a visual feast, awesome people, not really adequate words available to describe the experience, or feeling one has whilst there. Vibrancy, depth, history, passion, sacred, ancient, connected, energy… it was a once in a lifetime journey, I will never forget.  Cant wait to start painting, and see what evolves.

The second very large painting, (of three) has now been installed. A diptych (2 panels, each panel is 2.4m x 1m, so entire painting is 2.4m x 2m)) of New Zealand native plants and our native bird the Tui. This is on the second level of a 3 storey office block, in the internal stairwell.
