Within Landscape
New paintings from Lake Coleridge to Nelson Wayne Seyb
22 September to 24 October 2015

Wayne Seyb doesn't so much paint the landscape, as 'inhabit' it, in a series of journeys from Otago coast and lake, to the shimmering light of Nelson; from the raw edge of weather and wild water, to the controlled spaces of the defiant red zone gardens of Christchurch.
