About this artwork

Afternoon Hush at the Hawkduns, features one of the little fisherman huts that are part of the old village that resides at Fall’s Dam in Central Otago. This artwork was inspired by a poem by Brian Turner called Nor’Wester which describes the overbearing sun and the brisk wind moving the dry grasses. This scene is at the end of such a day, the moment when the wind finally weakens, the sunlight softens and if you stand still you are enveloped in a hush of stillness.

Artist bio

Michelle Bellamy is a contemporary painter living in Nelson, specialising in capturing the New Zealand landscape with exquisite detail.

An avid mountaineer, Bellamy takes inspiration from exploring the corners and nooks of New Zealand’s lakes and surrounding inhabited landscapes. Back in the studio she creates meticulously detailed large and mid-scale paintings in acrylic on board. Her captivating geographic representations register and acknowledge a human presence on the landscape through the inclusion of familiar features such as South Island cribs and huts, set amongst exquisitely rendered tussock grasses and native flora. Bellamy’s precision brushwork and skilful layering of colour serves to intensify the clarity of New Zealand’s natural light and beauty.
