Alone at the Hawkduns, Falls Dam
1010 × 610 mm
“After travelling along an almost endless, dusty gravel road the landscape spits you out at a little fishing hamlet. Overlooking Falls Dam, the little fisherman huts are very basic, a shelter from the weather and not much else. This one, alone and a little more neglected this time stood out in front of the impressive Hawkdun Range. The Hawkdun Range is part of the Oteake Conservation Park and can be summited via Mt Ida, 1690m.”
- Michelle Bellamy

An extremely accomplished photorealist painter, Michelle Bellamy comes from a family of artists. She grew up in Nelson and after living in Taupo for two years, she has now returned to her hometown.
The purity and brightness of her palette captures and intensifies the clarity of New Zealand’s light, holding her subject matter up in stunning colour and detail. Often drawn to the water’s edge, through precision brushwork and careful layering, acrylic paint serves to render extraordinary the iconic and much loved baches and boathouses of our recent past. In her new work these are sometimes juxtaposed with the contemporary Auckland skyline, an added dimension which both records our history and channels a certain nostalgia for golden days gone by.
