I inherited a love of art from my mother. I am lucky enough to own my favourite pieces of art that hang proudly in our home. They are an Elizabeth Thomson from the Astrophysics series and a very early Karl Maughan. My wife bullied me to join the Foundation in 2008, and low and behold I actually enjoy being a part of it! I love the success of the Foundation and contributing to it – it’s been good fun.

Art is a very important medium that captures moments both in time and expression, I have a piece from a local artist that was commissioned in 2005 of Banks Peninsula and now its meaning has more significance post-earthquakes.

The new Christchurch will be a bright, modern environment with cutting architecture, brilliant landscape design and functional spaces. However we are also steeped in rich history and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū will be the vehicle to capture all these aspects of our heritage.

Our partnership with Christchurch Art Gallery, provides us (Bayleys Canterbury) with an opportunity to support both the Gallery and the people of Ōtautahi in a tangible way.

Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū is an inspiring destination, which shares our values of innovation along with our passion for art and its ability to educate and connect communities and people with art.

I’ve loved art as long I can remember. Growing up, my home was full of art and ever since it’s always been a part of my life. My favourite piece is Chapman’s Homer, especially because the whole city got behind the campaign to buy it for our city. I joined the Foundation board in February 2015 and love the work the Foundation is involved in. I was a part of the group that visited London in July and saw Bridget Riley’s work. The trip was life-changing and I absolutely can’t wait to see what she decides to do for Christchurch.
