Gitte’s friends and fellow artists are going to bring together a representative collection of paintings to honour and remember a beautiful person and talented artist through showing her artwork. Gitte’s passion for colour, texture and the fluid properties of paint will strike you as extraordinarily beautiful and immersive.
This exhibition is a tribute to the artist and the art that she produced and is a remembrance for a dearly missed friend.These artworks have come from private collections in Auckland and are representative of some of the styles of work in her painting career.
