NEW STOCKIST, ENDEMIC WORLD. HELLOOO AUCKLAND! July 01 2018, 0 Comments

Hello lovely people!

I'm excited to let you know that the first of my original paintings are now available in Auckland. Endemic World on Ponsonby Road have four small works for sale and I will be sending more paintings North just as soon as I can finish them.

 

Endemic World has a fantastic selection of original art available, as well as beautiful affordable art prints and a great website for online shopping. I'm super pleased to be working with them.

Meanwhile, the studio is full of new works on the go, as I complete some commissions and explore some new ideas. Stay tuned!

Thanks & best wishes,

Georgie.

 

 


WELCOME, 2018. January 24 2018, 0 Comments

This year I am studying abstracted portraits and still-life works, monochromatic works and looking at how to incorporate printed textiles into my paintings. An age-old approach. I can't wait.

In the studio I'm stretching new swathes of linen over frames and dreaming up new colour palettes. Wonderful stuff.

Also a return to my textile design roots as I incorporate some of my original drawings and paintings into new pattern designs that will be printed on fabric and turned into who-knows-what. Something delicious. I'm thinking silk scarves and linen totes... Suggestions welcome!

MAD SPRING & ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM October 01 2017, 0 Comments

HI Everyone,

"A color stands abroad
On solitary hills
That science cannot overtake,
But human naturefeels.

It waits upon the lawn;
It shows the furthest tree
Upon the furthest slope we know;
It almost speaks to me."

'A Light Exists in Spring' - Emily Dickinson

Not sure if it's the mad spring weather or just my creative evolution but change is definitely in the air.

I am researching abstract expressionism at present and feeling totally inspired by the movement that happened predominately in the 1950's. Willem De Kooning, Clifford Still, Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline....

I have begun to cut loose in my painting and mark-making, exploring expressionism further in my work.

I'm loving it!

This new work is entitled 'Uplift' and is available in the webshop

or via RED Art Gallery in Nelson.

Artwork Launch December 10 2016, 1 Comment

Hello!

We had a wonderful launch event for the new Belle Hawk Artworks last evening! Thanks so much to all who helped this evening come to life; especially Amy and Benjamin from Benjamin Black Goldsmiths who hosted the evening in their elegant space. Bubbly and canapés, the grand piano playing and lots of our favourite people in the room. What a treat!

For me it was super-satisfying to hang my paintings on the walls and present them to the world. (Well, to Nelson at least). All unsold paintings are still available to purchase in our webshop. Digital gicleé prints in A3 and A2 size of all paintings are also available - please enquire.

Happy weekend,

Georgie & Bee  x 


New Collage Collection - beautiful gifts! December 05 2016, 0 Comments

This charming collection of A4 collages is the latest addition to the Belle Hawk Art store. These are hand-crafted using the same complimentary spring colour palette featured in our launch collection of paintings.

Heavy watercolour paper, signed and posted flat on foam board with a cellophane wrap, these make fantastic gifts. They look great in a group or just simply framed up in white.

First release of six collages, with six more to follow.

We hope you enjoy!
