Brian Badcock Gallery


Few painters have wedded nature and the human spirit as well as Brian Badcock.

Brian is a well known New Zealand painter who has earned international and national success. His richly coloured canvases capture the essence of his Marlborough environment, its land, sea, buildings, boats and gardens. Countless painting trips cover the breadth of New Zealand and Asia. The rusty Russian fishing boats of Lyttelton, the colourful streets of Wellington's Newtown, the moods of the Kaikoura Coast and Indian village life.

The winter months are spent in the studio painting large, richly pigmented compositions which explore spiritual dimensions. A constant experimenter with method and process, Brian produces work which is individual and fresh.
