Morgan HancockRaised in Taranaki, Morgan Hancock is a full time graphic designer and part time illustrator now based in Auckland.Many of her drawings and designs are inspired by fashion and popular culture. Born in the 90’s and always been influenced by 80’s and 90’s fashion, Morgan draws clothes she would have personally wanted for herself but never had. Incorporating quintessential kiwi icons within her work, she creates a feeling of nostalgia and memories of her kiwi childhood in Aotearoa.Pen, pencil and acrylic paint are predominant materials, but subtle embroidered stitching is also utilised to create an element of surprise…….the ‘Aha!’ moment when people realise it is thread instead of paint.

Guy’s work can be found in collections both here and overseas.

This is his fifth year with the MAGS Art Show.
Jade Oskar HarveyJade is an Auckland based illustrator and is currently working in the creative industry, producing commercial illustrations as well as commissioned pieces. He has been drawing since an early age and loves bringing his own creative touch from the world around him. He gets a lot of inspiration from the native plants and animals of New Zealand. He enjoys looking into the animal anatomy which enables him to understand their form, all the way down to the skeleton structure. Jades spends quality time on fine detail which comes out in his art pieces.
Justine HawksworthJustine Hawksworth holds a Fine Arts degree from Elam and is trained as a secondary school art and design teacher. Now working from her studio in Mt Eden, she produces limited edition fine art prints and paintings using a range of materials - predominantly acrylic, pencil and copper on nautical charts and maps.Justine’s work can be found in galleries throughout New Zealand as well as pieces held in both New Zealand and international collections. She is constantly inspired by our New Zealand native flora and fauna, our land and sea, holidays in the classic kiwi bach and the things we collect there to create memories.
Rupert HerringWorking mostly with found timber, Rupert sees wonder and potential far deeper than surface appearance. His work oscillates along a delicate line between sculpture and furniture.Through transforming ordinary objects or material into the extraordinary, Rupert celebrates ‘not so perfect’ aspects such as defects and wear. A piece of old discarded timber or furniture has a history and thus when re-worked gains a new lease of life.He believes everything we create is a result of our life experience, our culture, our language, and the exchanges we make - that our work truly comes from within.In a world where throw-away is taken for granted and choice is paramount, the limitation of using what is pre-used and sustainable is very liberating.
Hoch + GreenA friendship spanning over 20 years between friends Julie Green and Gina Hochstein percolated into a wonderful creative collaboration. Both bring a similar creative aesthetic, but with differing skills. This originative duo challenge the viewer’s perception of the humdrum of everyday life. As mums, they struggle with the day to day conflict which our lifestyle on this planet brings, and wrestle with what the future holds for our children. Highlighting how lucky we are to be living in New Zealand, they celebrate by looking at the beauty contained in the small and ordinary, but highlight the dangers to our existence too. This journey of the collaborative process according to HOCH+GREEN has been both exhilarating and liberating.
