Couple Mark and Jodie Flowerday share a love of art, nurtured through the growing collection that adorns their walls at home in New Zealand.
Impressive in size, work by Shannon Williamson, titled Wintern triptych, hangs above a shelving unit. Williamson is represented by City art Depot, Christchurch.
A series of works by Scott Eady lend a sense of playfulness. Eady is represented by Sanderson Contemporary, Auckland.
“Installed in a smallish stair, these are such fun works to live with. The materiality of them is one thing, but better for us, the play between grown up ‘art’ and a cascading game from childhood…”
Tony de Lautour’s Body Corp 2 adds interest to this nook. De Lautour is represented by Hamish McKay Gallery, Wellington.
“This is a favourite just for a relief from the surrounding colour and busy-ness of works!”
Snuggler, by Miranda Parkes brightens up this nook. Parkes is represented by Jonathan Smart Gallery, Christchurch.
“The most fun work you can install in a corner. There are a number of Miranda’s works at home but the way this sits in the corner most aptly named is a joy on an extra level. As with all Miranda’s work, you can’t help but smile.
This epitomizes why we want to collect and be surrounded by art, living with things that bring a sense of wonder and joy.”
