Art in Wellington

We are staying at the Museum Hotel in Wellington which has a really interesting collection of art everywhere. When we arrived the foyer/bar (above) was full of people listening to a duo singing Edit Piaf numbers accompanied by a kazoo and accordian. The Reception desk was doubling at as bar so checking in was an interesing experience.
Most of the art is not, unfortunately, labelled but no one seemed to mind me taking photos so here are some of the pieces that took my fancy.
These are by Gregor Kregar

I love the detail work on this portrait which you would swear is a photo from a distance.

This cardboard dress by Tania Marriot has been influenced by William Morris designs and is cutout from sheets of timber.

Landscape by Robin White

Some more interesting pieces - very interesting decorative style don't you think.

Let me know if you would like to see more.

Down south I bought this fabulous necklace by Brendon Jaine - a local artist who only uses recycled bottles. I really love it and it makes a great clinking noise when you wear it.

Wow Lisa, what a fascinating place to stay. It sounds like the setting for one of those British mystery novels set in the 1920's

How wonderful Lisa. reminds me of the Chelsea Hotel in New York which is also decorated from top to bottom (all seven storeys of it) with art work.
Am vicariously enjoying your trip.
