  • Free Admission

Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts takes pleasure in presenting the recent work of Palmerston North painter Annabel Neall as its last exhibition of the 2012 year. 'People and Places - Recent Paintings by Annabel Neall', an exhibition and sale, will open on Friday, 30th November, with a public reception to honour the artist from 5-7PM at the gallery, 33 George Street, Palmerston North. The public is cordially invited to attend the opening and meet the artist. 'People and Places' continues through 24th December.

Exhibiting annually for a number of years at the Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts gallery, Annabel Neall has developed a core of collectors for her semi-abstract figurative and landscape paintings which often reflect her travels, her interests and her passions. This exhibition is no exception. 'People and Places' consists of 20 works using acrylic paints and other mixed media on stretched canvas and board. These works depict her interest in croquet, a visit to Chile and observations made within the Manawatu-Whanganui region. The artist writes:

"This exhibition features people and places that I have encountered over the last couple of years. I have always loved painting people and have combined this with studies of scenes in different countries. The scenes are portrayed as emotive expressions with an emphasis on colour rather than detail. In the paintings depicting Chilean scenes, I've tried to portray emotions in the colour of the lake and the river. The two salmon paintings represent the feelings I had when I saw such a large animal (22 kilos) just caught and strung up in a shed on the banks of Lago Yelcho River. I am always interested in light and shadow and how it plays on water and land. Sometimes the mere glimpse of a scene or a figure is enough basis for a drawing or painting. Such glimpses provide ideas and colours bring new subject matter to mind. The croquet drawings are from studies done over many years – characters in a sport I love."

Annabel Neall comes from Te Aute in Hawkes Bay. She grew up on a farm at Pukehou, where she always took the opportunity to sketch and draw in her childhood. She then trained as a nurse and midwife. During this period she continued to paint and attended several weekend art courses taught by Pat Hanley, Louise Henderson and others. She first exhibited at the Hawkes Bay and East Coast Art Gallery in Napier. In 1970 she exhibited at the Queen Elizabeth II Art Award in Hastings; and by 1974 had gained her Preliminary Fine Arts through night school at Queen Elizabeth College in Palmerston North. She then exhibited in the Manawatu Review in 1981, the Tokoroa Art Award in 1982; and showed her first solo exhibition 'Images of Interest' at Taylor Jensen Fine Arts, Palmerston North in 1998. Two joint exhibitions followed in 1999 and 2000 at the same venue. Since then she has held five solo exhibitions at Taylor-Jensen Gallery - 'Images of Interest – A Progressing' in 2004; 'Images of Interest from the Flinders Ranges in South Australia' in 2005; 'Reflections' in 2006; 'People and Places I' in 2008 and 'Figures in Abstraction' in 2010.

Annabel has completed a number of papers at Massey University. She has exhibited at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts, the Wine Country Gallery in Havelock North, Emerge Gallery in Wellington, and the Parnell Gallery in Auckland. She has illustrated three books and completed many commissions for American, Australian and United Kingdom patrons. Annabel's works are principally in acrylics and mixed media. She loves sketching historic houses, painting animals and Hawkes Bay landscapes, but more recently is finding satisfaction from painting abstractions.
