My Colourful World

Aug 1 - Aug 14

| Free

Presented by: Katikati Open-Air Art

Nicola Welten presents her exhibition at the Carlton Gallery.

She’s an expressionist artist working in acrylics, a long time Tauranga local living in Bethlehem. With a love of joyful, vibrant colour palettes and loosely inspired by my love of colourful flower gardens and the New Zealand landscape, she like to escape to the studio as much as possible.

Her art reflects a feeling or sensory experience rather than a literal interpretation of a scene. Her landscape works are often related to her obsession with family history. The more she uncovers about her ancestors, the more she try and imagine them and their travails (and travels) especially in Aotearoa’s early colonial days. She’s often tracing their footsteps and imagining what life was like for them, especially the women.

Her floral works are another outlet for her colour obsession and almost hark back to childhood and a feeling of being head high amongst the blooms close up.
