Raymond Jennings
Raymond has a Diploma in Fine Arts from the University of Auckland and has been painting for over 45 years since the age of 12.
In 1994 he designed and constructed the stage set for "The New Zealand Wearable Art Show" in Nelson. He has completed several commissions including a large mural at Kamo High School and a double mural of trees inside the Aulsebrooks factory in Auckland. He has had a number
of exhibitions in public art galleries in New Zealand including The Suter City Art Gallery and The Canterbury Art Gallery in Christchurch.
He has also had successful shows at the Adrienne Contemporary Art gallery in San Diego and the London Fine Arts gallery in Singapore.
His works are held in private and public collections in New Zealand and overseas.
Raymond paints New Zealand landscapes that are distinctive in their composition, structure and choice of colour.
The line is an intrinsic part of the structure and the rhythmic combinations of colours are deliberate and not forced.
Raymond has been a finalist in the Wallace Awards in 2006, 2009 and 2011.


WORK IN COLLECTIONS
BNZ - Christchurch, Trust/Westpac Bank – Christchurch, Lincoln University - Christchurch, Ashburton Society of Arts Gallery
James Wallace Arts Trust - Auckland. Numerous private collections in NZ, USA, Singapore, London.
 
‘My paintings, drawings and sculpture are a positive expression of our world in form and colour, motion and character, radiance, and depth, with the energies of universal inspiration. The simplicity and complexity, significance and magnificence of our mind and soul in celebration – alive as our great creative adventure. My current line of work is the exploration of human interiors . . . as expressions of human psychology and the historically varied styles of architectural design, both structurally and as surface adornment, that also is full of human symbolism.
The rich luminosity of colours accentuated by the mysterious play of shadows.'

My new series entitled ‘Shelf Life’ utilizes any ‘shelf,’ natural and handmade, as a platform for my compositions of objects, both natural found specimens and also human, European and Maori artefacts of historic or cultural significance . . . playing on their symbolic associations and contrasts of difference.

Down the road it curves into the unknown . . . walking the gauntlet of shadows – with the menacing clattering above, of branches in the wind.
As night falls and devours even these strong shadows there is no end to the haunting presence remaining as company in your solitude, reduced to abstract shapes of darkness intermingled with an eerie light of cloud shrouded moon . . . just enough to tease your sight into believing in ghostly realities conjuring up forms of fear – speaking invisible words, speaking indecipherable mysteries holding you in your avenue of destiny.
But, then, you remember – this is just a ‘picture’ . . . of creative expressions, free from fears and worldly imaginings and the idea of ‘destiny’ with no choice. You are in your very own mind, free from it all.
