Lex Benson-Cooper Born 1953. Lives in Napier. Published in 'Seen This Century, 100 Contemporay New Zealand Artists - A Collector's Guide'. Warwick Brown. Lex Benson-Cooper is best known for his paintings, and his work has developed a strong following in New Zealand and abroad. Lex graduated from the Fine Arts program at EIT in 1994. Lex has also had winning entries in the Mainland Art Awards, the Norsewear Art Awards and the Hawke’s Bay Review. “My work reflects to some degree the zeitgeist of Contemporary expression”
In 2005 I graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts, at the University of Auckland, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in painting, then spent time in Japan teaching English and exploring Japanese art and culture.
I returned to live in Newtown, Wellington and in 2005 exhibited paintings at Black Barn Gallery in Havelock North.
In 2006 I trekked to the Mt Everest Base Camp in Nepal , spent some time in Kathmandu til riots sent me back home where I found work pumpin' petrol gas at Caltex in Wanaka for the ski season.
My next working assignment was first in North Carolina, USA on a Christmas tree lot, from Thanksgiving to mid December 2007 , then in a New York City pie shop in Brooklyn . During this 6 week stay, I visited a multitude of galleries, and was able to catch up with my mentor, Max Gimblett, at home on the Bowery. A fantastic time in one of my favourite cities.
In 2007 I entered the prestigious Park Lane Investments Art Award in Auckland and was awarded one of the five top awards.
‘Sybil Roberts The gift of health is keeping me alive’, is a mantra I repeat frequently now, as in the latter part of last year I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. During my post operative recuperation I utilised my time to begin a series of paintings to express my gratitude for becoming cancer free and healthy again. After a hiatus of 7 years from my creative practise, during which time I have become a successful massage therapist, I have reconnected with my passion for creative expression through these works. The tondo (round) shapes represent eternity, no beginning or end. From the microscopic world of cells to the macro world of the cosmos and beyond, we are connected by invisible forces. These colourful works express my love for being alive and being part of an all encompassing world where we all live in the universe and the universe lives within us.
It is written in the stars that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Infinite love and gratitude to you all.

Mike Da - Pirate - Batista Born Wellington October 1978 E.I.T Graduate Visual Arts
Eldest child of four of N.Z born mother and chile born father, Michael's passion and social conscience perhaps stems from the father a refugee from Pinochet dictatorship, Michaels dad immigrated in the 1970's, the family residing in Auckland - where Michaels artist endeavours started in a Graffiti tunnel not far from his home. In mid 1989 the family relocated to Napier - during this move Micheal had a leg amputation due to falling from his grandfathers truck, health problems ensued with a kidney transplant whilst Michael was in his graduating year at art school. Michael on recovering is working with bold colours, abstract and figurative works gripped with social conscience - observations frustrations of humanity, THE injustices and problems. Art projects for the visual benefit of the community Michael often works in up-cycling recycled bargain bin found object materials. Quote Tish Scott " I came around the corner at Marewa outside the fish n chip shop a colourful installation of cardboard boxes of Art with LET GO - LET GO - LET GO - LET GO - FREE - FREE were before me, ecstatic to see Art in this raw and social conscience impact . I selected 2 then i sat and watched peoples reactions - people were curious but almost didn't know what to do - it oozed interaction vitality and energy."
Ken Sand ö
Bachelor Degree: VAD 2002
Practising Artist who has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions.Ken’s art making is driven by his ongoing fascination with the construction and polemics of figurative and representational art and the perceptions of both the artist and viewer to the made image. Through this process of conceptualization he usually twists the accepted forms of normative constructs by introducing,via his imagery, fanciful paradoxical fabrications.

He played an integral role in the design and construction of the wood fired kiln and delights in learning to master its complexities. John is passionate about wood firing his sculptural forms, and enjoys the link to the tradition of his craft and the unique effects from flame and ash that are created during the course of a wood firing. Besides producing a range of domestic and decorative pottery John’s current work involves sculptural garden and water features which are predominantly inspired and informed by ideas of the „organic‟ and „feminine‟.

ROBYN FLEET It is the intention of my work to suggest avenues of emotion and thought, the human experience through sensations of materiality and tactility. I work methodically yet intuitively, setting up complicated relationships, connecting them through re discovery of events using an archaeological method of scraping, digging, scratching back through a palimpsest surface.

JEFF THOMSON Biography Jeff Thomson is rather like a modern day Abel Tasman or Captain Cook. He sails freely into unknown seas, making important discoveries en route. "Simply by working with a new material he has enlarged our world." He has almost single handedly taken corrugated iron off the roof and put in on the wall and the pedestal.And, by the way, he has put it back on the roof again! Born in Auckland and growing up in Castor Bay on its North Shore a rather shy but outdoors orientated youth left handed and mildly dyslexic, Thomson has become without doubt the Corrugated Iron Man of Australasia. From an early age he showed considerable promise, developing an ability to draw images quickly with pencil rather than using the written word. This artistic flair was soon picked up and nurtured. When he went to one of Auckland's most adventurous secondary schools, with a strong "Education through Art" tradition, it was clear that the next step was the Elam School of Art attached to the University of Auckland. Here the young Thomson was exposed to a series of horizon-expanding situations that culminated in a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1981. Curiously his major focus as a student was not sculpture but painting and printmaking. While taking a break from his art studies in 1980 Thomson found himself at Portobello, 20km out of Dunedin, living in a small seaside crib. It was during this time that a profound change occurred in Thomson's approach to life, art and environment. It came about through the discovery of an ancient pursuit - walking. While walking the rural and urban miles Thomson started observing and collecting the wealth of highway paraphernalia that he found on our roadsides. These highway experiences culminated in the rural letterbox sculptures, the first body of Thomson's works to gain national recognition by a diverse range of New Zealanders. And it was through this letterbox series of works that Thomson came face to face with his chosen material - corrugated iron. Literally out of the letter boxes emerged the large body of work for whcih he is now known on both sides of the Tasman. Corrugated iron animals, birds, cars and people: these works have established Jeff Thomson fairly and squarely in the memory banks of most New Zealanders and many Australians. I reiterate without fear of contradiction, that he is the undisputed Iron Man of Australasia.

One of Jane's amazing works on Christchurch earthquake - till - Auction images come.
AWAITING AUCTION WORK IMAGE
The world is the subject of my art. What happens in the studio reflects what is going on outside of it and what I am thinking about at the time. I have been working in this way for four decades now. I have worked across a range of media including printmaking,video, installation,photography, and painting. My practice has never been confined to one particular process or technique; adopting this pragmatic approach has allowed me to pick and choose the most effective visual and semiotic tools to convey my messages. My early work often explored the sociology of gender and sexuality. My recent work explores through both painting and photography the effects we have on the environment and since the Christchurch Earthquakes the effects of nature on us. My most recent exhibition Unruly memoirs:nature bites back comprised digital photomontages. I was very affected by the February 22,2011 Christchurch earthquake and only recently re-established a painting studio in a friends old washhouse. I once described myself as an art junkie. I like making art. For me making art is like breathing. It is just something i have to do.

He has recently returned to live performance with new band NO ENGINE.
“I am essentially a ‘mark-maker’ - everything else follows from whatever skill I have developedthrough drawing. I draw on anything from paper to demolition timber, from air to hard drives, with anything from paintto found objects, from guitars to voices - Of course there is always the problem of where to put the paint/notes, let alonewhat colour….or what key”
