Keith Olsen: Garden of Delights

2-6 August 2021

As a Catlins artist, my work is very much influenced by my wider environment. However, for this current exhibition Garden of Delights, I have limited myself to my own garden, focusing mainly on the edible plants to be found there. To capture the glowing colours of the fruit, vegetables, and flowers, I have used coloured pencil on dark-painted wooden panels. The name I have coined for this form of mixed media is ‘pencil painting’.

As well as exhibiting, I also teach art, and illustrate. My published illustrations have appeared in a wide range of children’s books and educational material.
