Matakana based artist Hope Gibbons is a contemporary New Zealand painter with works held in private collections here and throughout the world. Born and bred in beautiful Northland, Jody Gibbons is her name originally, but she uses her family name of Hope Gibbons as her artist signature to honor the passing of her father.
She has spent a considerable amount of time being privately tutored and has completed several Mastery Contemporary Painting courses in Auckland. She has recently been published in "New Zealand's Favourite Artists" Volume 2, plus has been featured in lifestyle publications such as "NZ Life and Leisure" magazine.
Hope's current body of works explores the materiality of paint - it pushes the boundaries of traditional painting practice and techniques. It exploits the use of paint, rust, inks, leaf and varnish. This work is ever-changing and currently becoming bolder, colourful and more gestural, however one recurring reference is back to the land.
