New Work

Dunstan Mountains Beyond Poolburn Dam, Central Otago, New Zealand
Original acrylic painting on cedar framed board by Michelle Bellamy
1000 x 600mm
Completed 2020
The Poolburn Dam is a barren, rocky, endless landscape, accessed via the very rough Moa Creek road, located west of the Rough Ridge Range. Long Valley Creek feeds the reservoir, and the reservoir itself feeds the Ida Valley. The reservoir is inhabited by fisherman huts dotted around, and is an excellent place to fish for brown trout.
This painting is part of the 'Layers Of Aotearoa' exhibition. Exhibiting together for the first time, ‘Layers of Aotearoa’ brings together new paintings by sisters Caroline and Michelle Bellamy, and their father Steve Bellamy.
Come and view this painting on Tuesday 20th October 5:30-7pm (RSVP) at the Parnell Gallery.
