ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Carol painting

Carol Banner

Carol Banner is an accomplished Pastel and pencil artist who lives in the Wairarapa district of New Zealand.

In the on-line slideshow you can see a changing collection of twenty pastel and pencil works. All are for sale.


Carol is mainly influenced by the Art Nouveau era which was largely based on nature and natural shapes and forms. The work of M.C.Escher has also had a big influence. His sense of design, use of space, perspective and mathematics was truly innovative, along with his mixture of fantasy, distortion and metamorphosis. The foundation for Carol's work is nature with slight variations so anything different appeals to her, hence the name for her work "Natural Fantasy".

AJ Hunter


AJ Hunter

Like Carol he is a fan of Escher and Art Nouveau, and his second exhibition was a joint venture with Carol.

His first public exhibition depicted iconic Wellington landscapes that either haven't existed or won't exist for centuries.

This third exhibition depicts Wellington views after 100 years of sea level rise caused by global warming, and are accurate digital photographic reconstructions of well known public places, like the Railway Station and the Carillon.

His biggest influences are Roger Dean, Maxfield Parrish, Mucha, HR Giger, Dali, Magritte and MC Escher. Closer to home he shares many of the same influences as his friend Carol Banner.
