XV - the artists (Part 3)

In the third of a five part series we introduce three more of the artists involved in XV: Joe McMenamin, Offbeat and Rachel Walker.

Left to right: Joe McMenamin, Offbeat, Rachel Walker.

Joe McMenamin's work explores the boundaries between illustration and painting: using silhouette, pattern and detailed line drawing among other techniques. Based in Wellington, Joe teaches art at Rongotai College between creating his own work and being father to 3 children aged 6 and under. Joe’s work is a mixture of drawings on plywood, paintings of art and film icons such as the Mona Lisa and Darth Vader, and Limited Edition prints. His work has a distinctive flowing, organic pattern developed over the years.

Offbeat is the creative outlet for Christchurch creative Perry Logan. Making "wood thingee's from recycled hardwoods", Perry's work revolves around monsters, creatures, robots and other oddities. Much of the wood used in Offbeat creations has been salvaged from earthquake damaged pieces. Each piece is a one off.

Napier born artist Rachel Walker (aka Walkerillo) can count living and painting in rural France and London, designing illustrations for the Royal New Zealand ballet, and taking tea in Bilbo Baggin's kitchen among the highlights of her career so far. Graduating from Massey University in 2008, with a design degree Rachel started a a graphic and textile design career before returning to her first love: hand-drawn illustrations. Currently painting within the theme of animals, extinction and evolution Rachel works mainly in watercolour, ink and stencilled spray paint.

Parallels with Nature
Parallels with Nature

Our latest exhibition is in many ways a study of duality: two artists studying two different strands of nature in simple tones of black and white; each artist carefully portrays the strength and fragility of life whether it is a drawing of an intricate teasel or the stippled portrayal of the mighty cape buffalo.
