About the Artist

Rick Allender

I am a New Zealand born cinematographer and established contemporary marquetry artist working from a studio in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.

My cinematic experience with interpretation, organisation, composition, texture and lighting informs my artistic approach and interests which are focused on hand-cut contemporary marquetry and collage using wood veneer combined with a range of other materials. 

The detailing of my artwork and methodology is also inspired by traditional timber boats. I sail a classic yacht around New Zealand’s coastal areas. Referencing for my work arises from the nautical environments I encounter during this time as well as the exacting construction and operation of my mid-century Danish-designed yacht.
