Cops and Robbers with Contemporary Frame
A popular and nostalgic print from Christchurch artist Hamish Allan capturing the era perfectly of the recently demolished colonial era police station (complete with blue light) from Lyttelton. Classic Holden police car in the foreground.
Hamish works from his home in Christchurch New Zealand where he lives with his partner and two children.
His style is characterised by clean precise imagery often depicting stylised representational New Zealand landscapes and often incorporating iconic architecture. His interest in the relationship between the Landscape and human intervention is often present and Hamish endeavours to portray this in a contemporary manner. He is fond of looking through his rose tinted glasses at times gone by.
His work has a feeling of space and a sense of the serene created by leaving out unnecessary imagery creating a stripped back essential image. Taking time to render a seamless drift of tone and a conscious pushing and pulling of perspective providing an intriguing and rewarding visual experience.
