Amiria Gale: Artist Research

Last Updated on May 28, 2024

I am honoured to discover that many students around the world study my artwork. This is partly because I was one of the first artists in New Zealand to have my own website (first built back in 2007 by the wonderful and now-famous Hadley Wickham). As a consequence, students and teachers found my artwork from the other side of the world. (I have written more about the benefits of creating your own artist website – and just how easy this process now is.)

This page contains a collection of artist research projects that students have produced while exploring my artwork. If you are looking for more information about my paintings and the thought processes behind them, please read About Amiria Gale or the detailed article about my shell paintings. If you would like to have your student work featured on this page, please get in touch. When I get around to next updating this website, I will include another selection of artist research examples here. Thank you!

Film featuring artwork by Amiria Gale
I was delighted to discover that film student Bethan Gilmartin wished to use my paintings in a gallery location within her upcoming film, Rome In Cardiff. This was an independent project, not connected to her university studies. Bethan is a mature student studying in Wales, prior to completing her summer Master’s assignments. Wonderful!
