I went to see an exhibition by Barbara von Seida at the Carlton Gallery (part of The Arts Junction) in Katikati yesterday. As soon as I walked in, I said, “these are my kind of paintings”—heavily abstracted landscapes with beautiful colour and atmosphere.
The only thing I didn’t like was that many of the paintings were behind glass. That seemed odd for acrylic paintings with very visible brushwork. The gallery was also quite small, so I couldn’t back up as far as I would’ve liked from the paintings.
Other than that, I loved the exhibition.
