Nicholas Hayter

Ahuriri Boats by Nicholas Hayter

Country To Coast: New Paintings by Nicholas Hayter is Nick’s fourth solo exhibition and his second at Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts. The exhibition and sale showcases 37 oil paintings—his largest solo show to date—includes landscapes, still-lifes, a figurative work inspired by the art deco style and a plein-air painting. Most of these works were completed during the year prior to this show and include views of many of his favourite locations: Rotorua, Tauranga, Hawke’s Bay, Wellington and places in between. “Each painting is portrayed in a rich palette of vibrant oil colours, capturing the interplay between light and shade; a sense of time and place is expressed using tone and colour harmony,” according to the artist. “Palette knife paintings also feature in the exhibition, giving a unique perspective from thickly layered oils.” The exhibition will open on Sunday 11th October from 1-4pm at the gallery.  The public is cordially invited to meet this young, emerging artist and have first selection of Nick’s latest works.

 Nicholas Hayter was born in Hawke’s Bay and grew up in an artistic family that encouraged creativity. Nick has been painting in his preferred medium of oils for ten years and has pursued a full-time career in art for the past five years. He is a self-taught artist working from his studio in Napier, but also paints plein-air (painting out-of-doors). He paints in a vivid, impressionist style revealing a unique depth of colour and light distinctive of the natural landscape of New Zealand. His subjects include seascapes, rural scenes, still-lifes and some figurative work. Recently Nick has added palette knife techniques to his repertoire, adding a richness and depth of texture to his paintings.

 Hayter’s awards for his skilful artistry include ‘Best Oil Painting’ at the Paraparaumu Rotary Art Show in 2011 and a Merit Award at the same exhibition in 2013. His paintings have been exhibited widely throughout the North Island in group and solo exhibitions and featured in many New Zealand contemporary art calendars. This year Nicholas was invited to be the Selector for the Ninth Annual Art Hawke’s Bay exhibition, ‘Hawke’s Bay Naturally’.

 Paintings by Nicholas Hayter are held in private collections in the USA, UK, Australia, Singapore, France, Canada, Japan and throughout New Zealand.
