  • Eade Gallery - 'The Art of Light' by Kelvin McMillan.

Born and raised on a South Westland dairy farm, Kelvin McMillan, started working as a full-time artist in the early 1980s after moving to Canterbury as a young man. His works depicting New Zealand landscapes, buildings and people are highly popular and he is a member of Landscape Artist International – the first New Zealander to be part of the group.
“As a young artist, I was inspired by other artists such as Brent Trolle, John Castle and Malcolm Warr. My work is mostly rural-based and light and colour is my main inspiration, along with the history of old building facades and other weathered everyday objects. I also love to paint faces of old people such as farmers, blacksmiths and fishermen in their environments.”

Kelvin describes his style as representational in watercolour, acrylics and pencil – all of which will be on show at his solo exhibition at Eade Gallery.

“I am showing a variety of work in both acrylics and watercolours, from a mustering scene to a view looking up the Cardrona ski field road to some beehives beside the Clyde River and Lake Dunstan. My hope is that people will enjoy the variety of subjects and the light and strong colours that I use. It’s always exciting to be able to showcase a range of work in one gallery setting.”
