Guy Harkness - Being an artist is in the blood.

True artists are built with their expression intact, but we live in a world that doesn’t necessarily reward the gene.

You became an artist in order to express yourself, create the art you've always wanted to create, and have the commitment and will to continue doing so no matter what the circumstances. Harkness has managed to keep his creative flame alive since childhood. While his output has fluctuated during his full-time career in the advertising world and raising a family, he has been back painting for the last ten years, snatching precious hours from his day job as often as he can, creating his next work of art.

“I’ve always loved the creative process so I’ve been fortunate to work in a creative industry doing exciting projects alongside some inspirational characters. More recently I’ve had the opportunity to dive deeper into the creative process through my painting. It’s something I never tire of. There’s always something to learn, discover or evolve; a new challenge; an unexpected response.”

His upcoming exhibition features a number of recent landscapes - a genre which Guy has explored throughout his artistic career. Named after the well-known audio track from our Metservice marine forecast, ‘Bream Head to Cape Colville’ presents a series of familiar landmarks that have found a home in our collective sub-conscious. At one level, our recognition of these landscapes creates a common currency based on shared experience. At another, our memories of each place influence our individual reaction to each piece. This is Guy’s first exhibition of works following a single theme.

His popular and distinctive style will be familiar with many Mt Eden residents as Harkness has exhibited and supported local school art fairs.

A New Zealand artist, living and working in Auckland’s Mount Eden, Guy paints mostly in oil and acrylic on canvas or board. His artworks include local landscapes, portraits, still lifes and subjects which are intrinsically part of our culture and history.
