Yana Meech Art with Kay Bazzard Ceramics
Open until Sunday 20th February 2022
Yana Meech lives in Katikati, a self taught artist preferring to work with acrylic and inks as a medium on framed canvas. Her style ranges from contemporary landscape to abstract, experimenting in her home art studio with the old and the new. Yana loves to paint atmospheric, moody paintings inspired by the views from her rural home.
Yana’s works sell throughout New Zealand and overseas including UK, Scotland, Australia and the United States. Yana has exhibited extensively, from the Hibiscus Art Show in Orewa to the New Zealand Art Show in Dunedin. She placed First for Best Overall Work in June 2016 at Ellerslie Art Exhibition, received Merit at Auckland Easter Show 2014 and second in the acrylics section at the 2011 Franklin Arts Festival.
Kay Bazzard is a figurative ceramic artist and writer. Her ceramic practice focuses on the human figure and through it she explores the human psyche as expressed in gesture, expression, and movement. She draws on her own emotional history and from observing and interpreting the moods and behaviours of others.
Kay likes to experiment with different glazes, clays and techniques. She often incorporates unusual elements such as using old macracarpa or copper. Kay’s sculptures are suited to being both inside or outside.
