A homage to the sights and sounds of Akaroa, Galina’s new suite of compelling paintings feature picturesque historic cottages, lush woodlands, and distinctive costal vistas familiar to many. Employing bold colours, rich textures, layers of paper and fabric, her paintings evoke a vibrant tapestry of scenes, emotions, and memory.
‘I have sought to capture the spirit of this unique place. It’s my invitation to engage all your senses; hear the seagulls cry, taste the sweetness of ripe fruit, inhale the floral bouquet of Akaroa’s gardens. Bird song and ocean whispers infuse the atmosphere, it is simply a joy to capture on canvas.’ – Galina Kim
