Author(s): Janice Gill
Dramatic paintings of New Zealand life on the margins including 152 paintings and notes about each.
Born in Winton, Southland, Janice's first solo exhibition (Auckland, 1974) sold out in a week. Since then she has developed a unusual niche for herself as a documentary painter, telling graphic stories of old - and contemporary New Zealand. Janice's work is represented in public and private collections. It often focuses on people on the margins of society. She has been a Labour Party activist for three decades and now lives and paints in Nelson.
