Meg Gaddum

Meg has been painting since 2019 near Opotiki, previously spending her life sheep farming outside Gisborne. Her formal training is agricultural science and then landscape architecture. That later deep dive into drawing and design principles determined a return to a creative path begun in childhood. “Working with oils, cold wax, inks, pencil, my work is non-objective, coming from my thoughts of optimism, generosity and connection. Finishing a painting I pay attention to balance, harmony and other elements of design. Abstract art is like jazz, it creates an impression unique to each observer who is free to follow where their thought takes them.”

Her work is always experimental, working with colour and layering complementary colours of blue and orange, red and green which feature often in her work. 

In 2023 she has had two solo exhibitions (Carlton Gallery, Katikati and TOLO, Omokoroa) and in December another solo in Gisborne. Also two Ponsonby pop up shows. In 2022 she exhibited in the MAGS Show, Auckland.
