About Winsome Gunning
After graduating from Canterbury University in Fine Arts I taught for some time before working professionally as an artist.
Early works included The Interior Series valued by many collectors. This series reflects a feeling of enclosement, with always a source of light midst the shadows.
Another popular series is The Mermaid Beach Series. These images of beach life were painted to share the feelings of peace and beauty of my beach.
This ambiance quickly left with the entrance of developers to Mermaid. For some time after my paintings expressed the pain of this transition and I call these The Transition Series.
Finally I decided to leave the beach and live a different way. My apartment took three years to sell and during this time Sustainable Dreaming permeated my images.
From this new part of my journey The New Earth Series has emerged. It includes sustainable materials and expresses my desire to seek a healing relationship with the soil and the natural world it sustains.
My contact with the followers of Permaculture and their caring ways with our earth has been a factor in the development of my concepts and the use of sustainable materials at one with our planet.
