FREE FOR WOMEN AGED 45 to 69 Temptingly tactile paintings ABOUT THE ARTS WITH MIKE NETTMANN Artist: Dianne Trewin's paintings are explosively energetic with no hold on the use of exciting, bold colour. Bad artists copy, good artists steal. -- Picasso Dianne Trewin at Kaan Zamaan Dianne Trewin is a Northland artist who lives and works in Whangarei. She studied painting under Colin McCahon, Garth Tapper and Robert Ellis in the late 1960s. First exhibiting at the Northland Society of Arts as a working mem- ber in the early 1970s, she continued to show works in group and solo exhibitions until 1979. A gap of several years fol- lowed when life and motherhood took pre- cedence. Her latest exhibition shows works emanating from various workshops with Auckland artist James Lawrence. These works appear to be purely abstract; however they all start with an idea which develops through the painting process with freedom and independence, thankfully avoiding com- mercial concerns. Certain elements con- tinue through her work -- the use of line dominates, with colour and mass providing strong imagery. Dianne s paintings are explosively energetic with no hold on the use of exciting, bold colour leaping across the possibilities available to abstraction. A few of her more mellow works glow with subtle hue and value changes. I particu- larly like her use of resin where she deliberately leaves small areas of the painting s surface unsaturated allowing interaction with ambient light. Dianne s paintings are temptingly tactile and charged with emotion -- the viewer is encouraged to touch each surface. Exhibition ends Sept- ember 16. Thelonious Punk CD review This group of fine musicians has become a popular attraction at many events and functions and concerts at The Turner Centre where they recently released their debut album Thelonious Punk. The album is an eclec- tic collection of moods and music featuring compositions by Thelon- ious Monk; Horace Sil- ver; Dave Brubeck and Herbie Hancock to name a few. The group s innovative approach to some of the now well-worn standards like Take Five is refresh- ing with a slight twist on rhythm. The album is easy listening including some outstanding solos by guitarist Aaron Wright and flugelhorn player Matt Watson who both perform with a beautiful, subtle expres- sivity. This album is a must for all jazz and Thelonious Punk fans. Printmaking Com- petition The second Art at Wharepuke inter- national open sub- mission print show will be held from December 10 to January 7.
