Greer Clayton is a contemporary painter living in Auckland, New Zealand.
Having graduated from Elam Art School in 1996 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Clayton went on to travel extensively, exhibiting in Sydney, London, and Scotland.
Clayton creates large-scale atmospheric paintings that extract the essence of our distinctive New Zealand terrain. From the artist, “I’m interested in the ‘feel’ of the environment, the changing light and the shifting clouds through the islands and mountains giving more movement and moodiness. Landscapes have their own distinct colours and textures formed from native plants, rivers, lakes, and coastlines rising to the ever-changing skyline. I aim to capture some of that energy visually.”
