Delivered flow-wrapped to top real estate value homes around Christchurch,

it targets readers with a high disposable income. Designed to inspire, Style has

What is the definition of style? I believe it is acquiring and selecting the finest life has

to offer – be it in the way you dress, what you buy, what you read, how you eat or

how you act. In this issue, as always, we bring you the best of Christchurch’s style.

On page 20 we profile Ben Foster, a figurative and abstract sculptor. His works

are instantly recognisable, all created in his studio on the Kaikoura coast and now

sought-after on an international level.

On page 12, I had the pleasure to interview Phil Stanton, co-founder of The Blue

Man group. HIs passion and vision has created a world phenomenon that entertains

and astonishes audiences worldwide.

We have a sneak peek at a new home that is one of the finalists for this year’s

Master Builders House of The Year and get some inside information from judge

Faye Pearson-Green. It’s time to dream a little with our luxurious bedroom edit

in our interiors section, where you’ll find the secrets to enjoying a peaceful night’s

On your marks, get set, and go! The Christchurch Airport

Marathon is on the 5th of June. Inspired by the 1974

Commonwealth Games marathon, it is known as one of the

fastest courses in the world. This year, the route will take

runners from the start line in Cathedral Square, around

Hagley Park, before heading east along the Avon River, and

finally returning back to the city-centre finish line. If you

need an incentive to get running, all adult entrants go in the

draw to win a tip to Paris.

Designer Fiona Jackson

has launched a new range

known as Cuba & Candy, now

available at Quinns. Living

in Dubai, Fiona’s collection

is inspired by the vibrant

colours of the Arabian Gulf,

and seamlessly blends classic,

tailored sophistication with

the pulse and excitement of

the Middle East. The 21-piece

range is full of exquisite

fabrics and bright colours. We

love this Gucci-inspired dress.

Kiwi film producer Emily Corcoran has started production on a new film, The Stolen. Set in

New Zealand’s South Island during the gold rush years of the 1860s, the narrative follows

the story of a woman who must find her kidnapped son. Filming has started at Ferrymead

Heritage Park, with an international cast that includes Alice Eve, recently in Star Trek: Into

Darkness and Jack Davenport, known for his roles in Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Rocky

Horror Picture Show creator, Richard O’Brien will also play a part in the film. We can expect

to see The Stolen in cinemas in November this year.

KurioSa

Located just before Prebbleton, at 430 Springs Road, is a destination for antique lovers. After seven years of operating The White Cat

Emporium in Cheviot, Graham Weaver and partner Lal decided to retire, but, wanting to keep the business in the family, they passed the

reins to son Ezra, who had always had a passion for antiquity. Ezra Weaver and his partner Sacha Coogan have recreated The White Cat

Emporium as Kuriosa in Prebbleton. It represents the couple’s vision of having a taste of Europe on offer just outside the city. The beautiful

surroundings certainly make you feel like you’re standing in a rural paddock in Lyon, France. The store stocks high-end, one-of-a-kind, handsourced

antiques from Italy, France and various markets across Europe.

from Brazil, where meat is traditionally placed

Minutes

With Phil Stanton

Phil Stanton is co-founder of the Blue Man Group and a

Grammy-nominated musician, composer, writer and performer.

Speaking with Victoria Tait he talks about how the Blue Man concept

has evolved over the years and what we can expect to see at their firstever

Christchurch performance. The Blue Man Group will be

performing at Isaac Theatre Royal form the 21st June-3rd July.

You started the Blue Man Group back in

1988. How would you say the show has

developed and changed since then?

Well, it has always been an experiment,

or an exploration of the things that

made us feel truly human, the things that

excited us – art, science, and human

connection. I would say that the goal of

the show hasn’t changed – the goal has

always been to bring a group of strangers

together for a moment of collective

euphoria. But the specific things we

explore over the course of the show are

different, because of course, the world is

different, technology has evolved.

For those who don’t know, can

you briefly explain what sort of

entertainment we can expect to see

from the Blue Man Group?

I think that you can expect to experience

a very visceral type of entertainment. We

really hope to make you feel things, to

feel perhaps a little stirring inside yourself,

a reminder of how you used to feel as a

child. Maybe a refresher on how to see

the world with a sense of wonder again.

Get results.

Style | interview 13

What does the blue face paint represent?

We didn’t really overanalyse in the beginning. We knew we wanted

an image that would be arresting, that might cut through the visual

noise. As we walked down the streets of New York, we wondered

what would cause people to stop and look, to break out of their

own thoughts for a moment and reconnect, interact with the world

around them, and the image of this bald and blue character came

to mind.

Why don’t the Blue Men speak?

Funny thing, the Blue Men seem to say much more without

speaking than they do with words.

Do you know how many Blue Men there are worldwide? And,

also, what do you need to become a Blue Man?

We probably have about 50 active Blue Men in the world at any

given time. Our casting team typically sees about 1000 people in

order to find just seven. It takes a very unique skill set to be a Blue

Man. There needs to be a visual uniformity to the Blue Men, so

you have to be between 5'10" and 6'2", you need to be a skilled

drummer, and acting training is definitely an asset.

What’s the biggest misconception about the group?

Great question. I think that most people don’t know how often

we are working on new content and updating the show with new

material. We always want to keep the show fresh and relevant,

responding to the world around us.

In your other shows you supply raincoats for some audience

members? Can you tell us why? And will this be something we

will see in Christchurch?

Well, they protect clothing from any stray paint that might find its

way off the stage, but even better – they add a bit of excitement

and anticipation. You just never know what might happen.

SHOGA Gala Dinner at ilex Botanic Gardens

The cold rain mellowed into a steady drizzle, anointing the mid-city woodland of Hagley

Park as darkness fell. Through the soft cloak of night, the sound of footsteps echoed

as a procession of guests made their way to ilex. The function centre in the Botanic

Gardens was trimmed for a banquet, as elegantly as the attendees were dressed for the

evening. The Selwyn House Old Girls' Association (SHOGA) had staged the inaugural

gala dinner as an opportunity to celebrate the past, maintain the present and look to

the future of Selwyn House School.

M Factor Fashion Show for RMHSI

The place in which hymns are usually voiced and prayers whispered,

rang with other sounds of joy and celebration as the world of fashion

rallied to the cause. Ronald McDonald House South Island needed

funds and so it was that the Transitional Cathedral became, for the

evening, a chapel of couture. The creations of 13 designers were paraded

as the first fashion fundraiser for RMHSI to be held in this cathedral, was

enthusiastically received.

Sugarplums and divinely delicious garments were on the menu

at Quinns of Merivale when Fiona Jackson brought her exotic

collection to town. Glamorous, yes, but classy to the maximum,

the fashion feast both teased and appeased the appetites of eyes

and sweet teeth alike. Jars of sinfully toothsome confectionery,

vied for attention with the heavenly creations modelled expertly

on the boutique floor. Each morsel, made either of fondant

or fabric, made one crave for more and fuelled the desire for

excellence in garments and chocolate. The dream of wonder

ended all too soon as the last high heel clicked off the catwalk,

but there was a lot of candy to polish off before evening’s end!

NZSO Members' Pa rty

There was a buzz of excitement at Horncastle Arena as music lovers gathered for an

evening of pure bliss. As well as the concert, supporters and sponsors of the New Zealand

Symphony Orchestra (NZSO) attended a cocktail party to mingle with friends old and

new. The chat was of the season ahead and this evening’s programme featuring the

works of Lilburn, Brahms and concluding with the mighty Beethoven. Good company

plus the music of the masters, created an occasion to remember and the anticipation

for next time.

GRACI Foundation Fundraiser

The crystalline sweep of the Christchurch Art Gallery was

lit up like a belt of diamonds, welcoming guests to the fun

within. The array of fine food and French Champagne, which

flavoured the evening with edible opulence, gilded the more

serious agenda of the party. The GRACI Foundation, which is

another name for the Gynaecological Cancer Research Trust,

organised the event to raise much-needed funds to combat

the many manifestations of this disease. Silent and live

auctions – the latter loud with enthusiastic bidding – took

place causing money to flow in to support the cause. Added

to that, a jolly good time was had by all.

Ben

Foster

the Balance oF

Form and motion

Ben Foster creates life-sized animal sculptures out of

enamel-coated aluminium. He speaks with Victoria Tait

about his career, passions and international clients.

Ben Foster comes across as one of those rare

characters content and at peace with his life, and

hugely passionate about his career. Given this, it is not

surprising Ben’s works of art can now be found all over

the world, including Brazil, london, dubai, singapore

and australia. he recently took a commission in the

French riviera, creating two dogs to sit on the side of

an infinity pool overlooking the mountains.

From a young age, Ben was enthusiastic about art and

was fortunate enough to have his mother and father

encourage him. at the age of 16, he left high school in

hawke’s Bay to pursue his love at art school. “my tutor

took me aside and said although he could see art was

my true passion he felt I would benefit from gaining

some life experience,” Ben recounts. he soon put his

tuition on hold and instead took up a furniture-making

apprenticeship, which later led to boat building.

in his early twenties he moved to christchurch and

was involved in fitting out the interior of a 60ft yacht.

a fondness for sailing and the sea then encouraged

him to accept the challenge of sailing from nelson to

new caledonia with three friends on a 38ft yacht.

the plan was for it to take seven days, but, due to

some unpredictable weather conditions, it took three

weeks. This affinity with the ocean and natural world

has inspired Ben’s work, with the physical landscape so

present in his designs.

at the age of 26, Ben’s life took a turn for the better,

as he met his now-wife liana. Understanding art was his

first love and vocation, Liana prompted Ben to return

to study, which saw him graduate from christchurch

Polytechnic institute of technology (today’s ara

institute of canterbury), before the pair set their sights

on travelling europe.

While overseas, Ben saw first-hand that “sculpting

could be a viable option for a career”. With the

influences of the European art world behind him and

a new worldly perspective on life, Ben and his wife

returned to new Zealand focused on making art his

career first and foremost.

the couple intended on settling in a main city,

but instead fell in love with the Kaikoura coast – a

place that speaks to Ben’s artistic side. “my work is

largely a response to the natural environment. For

example, Golden Boy is the trusty labrador, who is a

work companion and man’s best friend, Shadow (shark


sculpture) is a misunderstood creature that plays a large role

in my everyday life, as i’m a surfer.

“i like to see the humour and light harnessed when

people view my work – it’s that instant recognition.”

Ben tells Style he recently he had an email from a woman

who has a tattoo of Golden Boy, and another person who

has a large image of it covering their livingroom wall.

“as an artist it’s great to see what your work means to

people and how they interpret it.”

So, how did Ben find his place in this animal world?

it all started with an exhibition he was involved in at the

Auckland Art Gallery where the topic was to find your

sense of self, and for this Ben chose a seal.

“i’ve always loved the seal, and living in Kaikoura and

surfing, they play a large role in my everyday life. The piece

sold straight away and that was the beginning of it all.”

Although Ben’s figurative animal sculptors have gained a

huge international following he also sculpts abstract works.

“i like to go back and forth between the two pieces. my

abstract works are also very linked to my environment

exploring the erosion, sand, wind, and the surf.”

What’s next on the cards for Ben Foster? This year,

he has already sold Speedy, the greyhound, to a couple he

met at dinner in london. he is working on a commission

from dubai for a falcon and the next project he’s thinking

of is a deer – “Just the simple form of the doe, peeled

back”. he will be holding another solo show in auckland

this november and, possibly – hopefully – something in

christchurch in the near future.

LYNETTE MCFADDEN

BUSINESS OWNER, HARCOURTS GOLD GOLD

AND AND WELL WELL KNOWN BUSINESSWOMAN

CONFERENCES

Should I I go or

should I I stay?

I have I just just returned from a a conference.

It It was industry-related (no (no surprise),

company-affiliated, and the the 20th

annual event that I have I attended in in

my my tenure as as a a business owner. It It would

be be fair fair to to say say that over the the years I’ve I’ve

developed both a a healthy appreciation

of of what it it must take to to host such large

events and a a love-hate relationship for for

how they unfold.

On On the the love side of of the the ledger is is

the the chance to to learn new ideas and

methods, and revisit others that, whilst

not not so so new, remain highly relevant.

I also I also love love the the chance to to reconnect and and

network with friends I’ve I’ve made during the the

years through periods of of both struggle

and and triumph. And And I particularly I love love the the

opportunity to to measure and and benchmark

our our company’s considerable efforts against

peers from around New Zealand and and other

countries throughout the the world where this this

brand now operates. This This includes Australia,

South Africa, America, Canada, parts of of the the

Pacific, and and Asia.

It’s It’s a melting a pot pot of of activity and and effort, and and

my my strong sense of of competition is is always

in in overdrive when awards are are given out out

based on on performance. What I’m I’m not not so so

enamoured by by are are some of of the the speakers

I’ve I’ve been exposed to, to, whose topics and and

presentation skills needed more work and and

effort. I’ve I’ve listened to to rhetoric that that was was either

out-of-date or or so so futuristic and and doomsdayish

that that some members of of the the audience

wondered if they if had had chosen the the right

profession. I’ve I’ve taken part part in in more breakouout

sessions than I can I can remember and and I’ve I’ve

ish

snoozed my my way way through presentations

that that should never have progressed past past the the

‘thought bubble’ stage. When that that did did occur

I’d I’d either quietly take take my my leave or, or, as as captive,

bored audiences around the the world do, do, I’d I’d

switch my my attention to to my my cell cell phone.

I now I think the the essence of of a great a conference includes the the following

three things:

1. 1. Inspiration – – all all of of us us need to to be be inspired;

it it could be be as as simple and and as as uplifting as as a a

song. I once I heard Dave Dobbyn sing sing our our

national anthem at at the the start of of one one of of the the

20 20 conferences I’ve I’ve been recounting. It It was was

moving, deeply emotional and and followed up up

by by Loyal. In In that that small moment he he and and the the

conference organisers had had the the attendees

in in the the palms of of their hands. We We were

inspired, engaged, and and ready and and waiting for for

whatever the the next two two days held. I’ve I’ve had had

my my life life changed by by inspirational speakers,

some of of whom were world-renowned

and and others more like like the the man next door.

Personally I’m I’m very very partial to to the the ‘rags to to

riches’ story and and the the working class kid kid who

goes on on to to great success. Gets me me every

time, which is is no no surprise.

2. 2. Connection – – to to the the audience; their

needs and and how they can can benefit. Sometimes

speakers are are so so unrelated that that audiences

struggle to to get get any any value. The The cross-over

interest points that that conference organisers

had had hoped for for just just get get lost lost in in the the confusion

of of divergent topics and and lofty audio visuals.

3. 3. Fun Fun – – every conference needs some

fun fun and and a chance a for for celebration. Evening

functions are are usually very very expensive and and

organisers need to to be be appreciative of of this, this,

paying attention to to both the the big big ticket and and

small detail items.

There you you have it: it: 20 20 years of of attendance

boils down to to three items, but but those are are the the

biggies for for me me – – as as are are the the awards we we have

just just received. The The biggest of of which is is that that

our our flagship office, Papanui, is is the the Number 1 1

office for for Harcourts out out of of 800 800 other offices

around the the world. I’d I’d go go to to any any conference

and and travel anywhere in in the the world to to accept

that that accolade!

Gwyneth Paltrow recently purchased a stunning

$6.37 million Venice-inspired home in Santa Barbara.

The home has ocean views and gorgeously groomed

gardens. Set on 466sqm, the estate has four

bedrooms, four bathrooms, 6-metre skylights and

high ceilings. This is a fabulous addition to Gwyneth’s

US property portfolio that includes two other

and an equestrian estate in Los Angeles.

lalique

René-Jules Lalique founded Lalique more than a century

ago, in 1888. Initially a jewellery designer, he thrived as a

freelancer during the art nouveau movement in Paris. He

opened his first store in 1885, on Place Gaillon, and, by

1890, had expanded to three more shops in Paris. It was

then he started the transition from jewellery to enamel

and glass. After his death in 1945, the company was

passed down to his son Marc, who was to bring Lalique

into the age of crystal, while the fragrance business was

developed later, by his daughter Marie-Claude Lalique.

In 2008, the business was sold to Swiss-owned company

Art and Fragrance, under the management of Silvio Denz.

Through these changes the brand has endured the test of

time and become the ultimate symbol of French luxury.

Our lux pick for this month is the Tourbillons Grand Vase.

How to Feng SHui

Your Bedroom

Are you having trouble sleeping? With a few small

changes to your bedroom layout you’ll find the

bedroom can become a peaceful, sleep-inducing

atmosphere.

Bed placement. This is crucial, as it reflects your wealth, health,

and love life. Your bed should be placed at the furthest point

of the room, facing the door but not in line with it. it should

also be a good height to allow energy to pass under.

Choose earth tones. By using a neutral colour palette you

will welcome a peaceful atmosphere. Feng-shui specialists

recommend warm earth and skin tones, such as cream, peach

and tan, as well as light blue and grey. Avoid bright colours,

such as red and orange.

Create balance and symmetry. use identical bedside tables

and lamps to create symmetry and balance.

Remove any technology. televisions, computers, and phones

give off a lot of energy. the bedroom should be a place of rest

and contemplation, without the distraction of the stresses of

the day.

Be careful with mirror placement. mirrors are usually bad

feng shui as they bounce energy, which can, in turn, keep you

awake and restless. if you must have a mirror in the bedroom,

think about placing it behind closed doors.

State-ofthe-art

heating

fireplaces are a key architectural design element to the home

and, more than often, the focal point of the room. gone are the

decorative mantels and in their place are bold design statements

with angular corners and modern shapes. if you are looking for

a fireplace for the living room, office, bedroom or outdoor area,

remember you are not only look for a heat source, but the

statement to the room. We’ve put together a selection of the

most state-of-the-art fireplace designs currently available.

The Inset Fireplace

this creates a clean, modern look to any room, while

allowing you to add your own individual style on the

hearth and surrounding wall. a large brick effect, as

shown here, can create a strong focal point.

The Corner Fireplace

Corner fireplaces add an interesting dimension

to a room. these are best suited to small homes,

where there is no space for a regular fireplace.

The Hanging

Fireplace

these sculptural pieces are as

much an investment in art as

they are a solution to warmth

during the winter months. if

your house doesn’t have a

fireplace, this is super-stylish

heating option.

The Freestanding

Fireplace

The freestanding fireplace has

taken a futuristic turn. if it’s a

statement you are looking for, an

ethanol fireplace makes a feature

of any space – indoor or out.

Winter FroST

And PlAnTS

Landscape architect Craig Wilson offers advice on how to

prepare your garden for Canterbury’s hard winter frost.

Good landscape design is always

a considered response to the

requirements of a design brief. When

designing in Canterbury there are

some specific factors that need to

be allowed for to create landscapes

that are great spaces for people to

be in and that are visually cohesive,

distinctive and successful.

A factor that can’t be ignored in

Canterbury is its regular, hard winter

frosts. This will have a distinct impact

on garden design. Plant selection in

Canterbury requires specimens that

have a good degree of ‘hardiness’,

which describes a plant’s ability

to survive frosts. This means, for

example, we generally can’t plant the

frost-tender subtropicals that do so

well in Auckland’s climate, or even

some of the frost-tender natives

people love, such as nikau palms

and pohutukawas.

However, the frequency of frosts

and a cooler winter, coupled with

a warm summer, will also mean

Canterbury gets true seasons and our

flowering plants and trees will tend

to put on better seasonal displays

than our ‘sister’ northern cities. If you

live in Sumner, or on one of the hill

suburbs, chances are your property is

above the ‘frost line’ and you can get

away with a wider plant selection –

frost-tender succulents, for example,

which just won’t survive on the flat.

In these scenarios a good degree

of local knowledge and an ability to

read existing vegetation patterns is

essential for successful garden design

that works with an existing niche

microclimate.

Pockets of frost shelter can be

established over time on most

properties by plantings and built

structures that create their own

microclimate and protection. A

shrub or tree canopy can provide

shelter for frost-tender seedlings and

young plants to establish. The eave

overhang on a house can provide

some frost shelter, which citrus,

for example, will typically require.

Another unexpected frost-free place

around most homes is beside the

external heat-pump condenser unit.

The airflow of the operating unit in

winter creates an airflow that can

stops a frost settling, allowing for

some interesting plant choices.

InteractIve

Playgrounds

Like all facilities in Christchurch, children’s

playgrounds suffered the devastating effects

of the earthquakes. Five years on, we are

seeing new exciting children’s areas pop up

all over the city. With the opportunity to rethink

how our children play, Christchurch

now has some of the most interactive

playgrounds in New Zealand.

MarGaret MaHy FaMily

PlayGround

This is the largest playground in the

southern hemisphere. Named after

Canterbury’s famous author, this is

a playground for all, with separate

activity zones for different age groups.

Activities include a four-metre-wide slide

and double flying fox, water play with

cannons, sprinklers and a splash pad with

controllable jets. For little ones there is a

sandpit area, rockers and a crawl tunnel.

The playground is free to visit and open

all day, every day. There is a free carpark

at 177 Armagh Street.

Merivale

interactive

PlayGround

Noticing a lack of playgrounds in

the Merivale area, the Merivale

Community Playground Society

arranged for a playground design

to be presented to the local

Community Board. This was

considered and then approved

in August 2014. The council was

unable to pay for the full cost of

installation so the society raised

funds through the Give A Little

project. $12,205 was donated

by 12 generous donors. The

playground features interactive

play equipment including an arc

ladder, bird’s nest swing and

Jupiter carousel. The play area

is between Rugby Street and

Office Road.

> For more on local playgrounds, visit www. theunder5scollective.co.nz

stonebrook, rolleston

This unique playground is situated in a

new subdivision of Rolleston. With a farm

theme, the playground has both physical

and imaginative play options. Activities

include a pretend wool shed and a basket

swing for children. A separate toddlers’

playground with a water play area features

as part of the landscaping.

Halswell doMain

Set in the beautiful reserve, this playground has the added

benefit of connecting children with nature. There is a pond

with natural wildlife, easy trails for family walks and paths

and bridges that create a natural play area. The main feature

in this new playground is a gorgeous train. For a moving

experience, visit on a Sunday, and hop on the miniature

railway. Halswell Miniature Trains runs rides for $2, from

1-4pm. Often there are remote-controlled sailboats on the

lake, too.

Building companies build show homes to demonstrate

their workmanship, display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and luxurious lifestyle,

featuring all the latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way nothing else

can. You can absorb the ambience they present and

admire the innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes and compare. You

can see at a glance features you would love to emulate

or would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you will see the building company's

attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get a good idea

of pricing, discover good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space,

future-proofing, ongoing maintenance and long-term

returns.

So what are you waiting for? check out our maps,

grab a notepad and pencil and begin the exciting

project of building your own home.

• What is your exterior style? What kind of

homes do you like? Look around and take a

mental note of what you are drawn to most.

• What kind of exterior materials do you like?

once you’ve worked out the look you like,

research what materials are available and

find out about their durability.

• How will you use your house?

it’s important to most people to have

good indoor/outdoor flow and attractive,

sheltered outdoor living. Imagine your

home in various seasons.

• Landscaping is important. Look around and

consider what you like and don’t like. Are

you a structured formal garden type or do

you like a contemporary native style?

• Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t just

buzzwords anymore. It’s very important

for your new home to be environmentally

friendly. Research insulation requirements,

solar hot water heating, ventilation options

and new technology to ensure your home

will be affordable to run.

• Interior décor is really exciting. This is

where show homes can really help you get

to know current trends, colours, beautiful

furnishings and furniture. Collect home

magazines and figure out what you'd love to

emulate.

• Also pause to give thought to architectural

components inside.

Do you like a raised ceiling? What kind of

finishing do top homes use and which styles

are you are drawn to?

• Heating is also a consideration. Have a look

at what show homes are offering.

• Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show

homes give you insight into the latest styles,

materials and storage facilities available.

• Bathrooms are another big component.

they need to be as luxurious as you can

make them, so start dreaming...

Helen nutt:

A BotAnicAl

Artist

Anne Hudson explores the

difference between botanical art, botanical

illustration and painting flowers. Through

Helen Nutt’s artistry she finds a new

appreciation for botanical paintings.

I love flowers, and I love paintings of

flowers, but Helen Nutt’s paintings

are not just beautiful they are also

scientifically correct; they are a record

of a species. Helen is a botanical

illustrator and artist.

The greatest flower painters have

been those who have found beauty

in truth; who have understood plants

scientifically, but who have yet seen and

described them with the eye and hand of

the artist.” – Wilfrid Blunt.

What is the difference between

botanical art, botanical illustration and

painting flowers? Botanical illustration

is concerned with the scientific

identification of a plant. The illustration

must be accurate so that the viewer

might use the information to identify

the plant in its natural habitat.

Botanical art, on the other hand,

emphasises the flower and is less

concerned with providing all the

botanical information. The aim is to

draw on the aesthetic qualities of the

plant to show the beauty of the plant.

The last category, flower painting, is

about pleasing the viewer with a nicely

composed representation of flowers

and does not have to be accurate – in

fact, it may only give an impression of

the plant.

Helen Nutt’s paintings seem to

encompass all three definitions; they

are accurate, beautiful and aesthetically

pleasing. Helen trained in Australia at

the acclaimed Melbourne Botanical

School, which encouraged her

attention for detail and a passion for

the pursuit of excellence in her work.

As one of New Zealand’s finest

botanical artist she is a leader in

this field. Helen is meticulous in her

research, studying the plant over its

life cycle, so as to understand the

plant through the seasons from winter

dormancy, to leaf bud, to blossom,

petal fall and to the ripening fruit

or flower. All of which is recorded

meticulously in her workbook using

pencil. “Observation is the key,” says

Helen, “My subject is drawn true to

size and I usually spend time preparing

a tonal drawing, recording the direction

of light onto the plant and where it

falls together with notes about the

botanical features of the plant including

its colour. Light gives the painting

life. The final painting is done with

watercolour taking many hours of

patient concentration.

“It is surely a labour of love but

when I have finished I feel the painting

is a part of me.”

Helen’s interest and commitment

led her to becoming founding and past

president of the Botanical Art Society

of NZ Inc. She has also exhibited in the

Canterbury Plains Florigium, which was

prepared for the Christchurch Botanic

Garden’s 150th birthday celebration

in 2014.

You might ask, “What is a

florigium?” This art genre likes to use

correct classical terms. A florigium

is an exhibition of plants that are

site-specific in that they are from a

particular geographic area, in this case

the Canterbury Plains. The artist’s

objective is to compile a collection

of scaled, measured and botanically

correct paintings and drawings of

plants from a specific location. Helen’s

Clematis paniculata was included in

the Christchurch Botanic Garden’s

Collection.

Opportunities to exhibit are

rare, but Helen Nutt’s paintings are

appropriately part of the North

Canterbury’s Art in a Garden’s

exhibitions, too.

Helen’s commitment to this genre

has convinced me to look at botanical

paintings with a new appreciation for

not only their aesthetic appeal, but also

their accurate portrayal of nature.

With the sugar debate on every mother’s mind, we look at some

natural sugar substitutes for home baking.

Honey: Scrumptious honey is packed full of antioxidants and is the perfect

sweetener for cakes and biscuits.

Apple sauce: Instead of white sugar, swap in an equal amount of apple

sauce. The natural sweetness from delicious apples is perfect in an afterdinner

treat.

Dates: With a low glycaemic index and a subtle sweetness, dates are

perfect for brownie batter or the base of homemade granola bars.

Substitute two-thirds of a cup for one cup of regular sugar.

Puréed Banana: In the next loaf of banana bread, try using extra-ripe

bananas and eliminating the sugar. The fruit naturally becomes sweeter as it

ripens, so there’s no need for extra sugar.

geometric verve of 1960s’ Vidal Sassoon,

to the raw energy and texture of 1970s’

punk, the charm and sophistication of 1920s’

finger waves and curls, right through to the

victory rolls and quiffs of the 1950s’ rockabilly

pin-up. Never before have all of these styles

competed in the same fashion market, and

yet, here we are.

How do you find a stylist to suit your style?

The single most important decision you can

make is choosing the right hair professional

to suit your taste, your expectations and your

needs. each stylist has a certain set of skills.

thinking all styles and all stylists are the same

would be like expecting your local Indian

restaurant to add a Spanish paella or Italian

pasta dish to your order.

When considering a change i strongly

advise asking someone whose hair you

admire. the advice of friends and colleagues is

fine, but remember they are advising on what

makes them happy, and that may be different

to what you want.

be honest about your own hair

requirements; daily maintenance required,

products needed and budget for cutting and/

or colouring work. All these things play an

important part in choosing a stylist. It is often

a good idea to arrange a consultation with a

new stylist before embarking on a change.

The old saying “A picture says a thousand

words” is hugely appropriate. Look for

pictures that represent important details of

the style you want (things like the outline,

layers, length, fringe, colour, movement

and texture). a good stylist will use their

experience of face and body shapes, hair

preferences to put together a

recommendation.

Don’t be put off if a stylist

enquires about products you

use on your hair at home.

these can seriously affect the

quality of styling and especially

chemical procedures. Most

people wouldn’t dream of

washing a delicate mohair

jumper on a heavy-duty cycle

in the washing machine,

and yet undermine their

investment in a colour and cut

by using below-standard haircare

products.

My own style is to work

as closely with how the hair

grows and falls naturally, cutting

to enhance its own qualities.

When my client’s needs go

beyond my specific set of

skills, it is my responsibility to

recommend another stylist to

meet their needs, in-house or

in another establishment.

remember, it’s all about you.

5 tipS

for optimal NutritioN

Holistic health and fitness specialist

Elly McGuinness looks at how nutritional

choices can have a huge impact on our health.

The degree to which your body is nourished with

optimal nutritional choices will have a profound effect

on your overall health and wellbeing. It will influence

your energy levels, your mental wellbeing, your ability

to burn fat, and the strength of your immune system,

among other things.

One of the most outstanding figures in the history

of medicine was the Greek physician Hippocrates. He

sums up the importance of optimal nutrition choices in

one line: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy

food.”

With winter upon us, now is a great time to focus on

increasing the number of positive choices when it comes

to nourishing our bodies with great nutrition.

Top 5 Tips for

opTimaL nuTriTion:

Base your nutritional regime around wholefoods

Think nuts, seeds, grains, fruits, vegetables, pulses and meat. make

choices in these food groups that are as close to the original food as

possible. This helps ensure the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients

are still intact. for example, raw almonds instead of roasted and/or

salted ones.

Choose organiC

organic farming places the

utmost importance on

caring for the soil because

it forms the basis for

health, for all life forms.

Healthy soil encourages

disease-resistant plants,

which then transfers to

the animals and people who

consume those plants. By

choosing organic, you are opting

for food that has been grown

without the use of synthetic pesticides

and without the routine use of antibiotics.

drink water

Your body can survive a surprisingly long time without food, but it

won’t last more than a few days without water. optimal hydration is

critical to ensure our muscles and nerves function properly, and even

mild dehydration can lead to feelings of lethargy. How much

to drink? The answer is quite simple – drink until your wee is clear

or almost clear. That’s an easy way to measure whether you’re

getting enough.

take time to plan and prepare

for eating well

it takes time and preparation to change your habits. schedule out

time to write shopping lists, shop for food and prepare meals.

plan to eat before you shop to minimise the chance of giving in to

temptation foods – or shop online to minimise even further. make

bulk meals to freeze for busy nights and set aside time to prepare a

packed lunch the night before. Keep useful kitchen items in easyto-reach

places – for example, put the blender on the bench rather

than in the cupboard so that healthy smoothie preparation is quick

and easy.

Change only one small thing at a time

You may feel overwhelmed by wondering where to start improving

your nutrition. make one small, achievable change and once that

becomes a habit (something you can do without a major effort),

then focus on something else. small changes are the key to success.

for example, instead of saying “i’m only going to eat wholefoods

from now on and forever,” instead make your target more realistic

such as, “i’m going to increase to eating at least four different

vegetables per day, on at least five days every week.”

Squid is a robust and textured seafood. it requires the correct preparation

to ensure it is perfectly cooked, and does not take on that unsavoury rubberlike

quality. Andrew Brown shows us the way, with his modern take on a

traditional cantonese dish.

cocktail of the Month is brought to

you by Stealth hospitality, the company

behind king of Snake, chinwag,

Mexicano’s and the Dirty land.

ingreDientS

4 squid tubes

(or 2 whole squid)

• to prepare the squid: For tubes, cut the tube in half

lengthways and remove cartilage/cuttle bone (thin,

clear shard that runs the length of the tube).

Without completely cutting through, score the full length

of the squid with lines approximately 5mm apart, on a

45-degree angle.

if using whole squid, cut the tenticles and scrub to remove

any of the hard sucker rings. From the tube, remove the

beak and cut the triangle tail. Only use the cleaned

tenticles and cleaned tube (as per above preparation).

Cut the tubes and tenticles into bite-sized pieces.

• Mix all dry ingredients well.

• Place the squid into the milk (this ensures the dry

ingredients stick to the squid).

• Heat the oil to 185°C in a deep fryer.

• Remove the squid from the milk and shake any excess

milk, then dredge the squid through the dry ingredients

(seasoning).

• Fry small amounts of squid until the coating is crisp.

Mosaic by Simo offers the exquisite taste of Morocco, in addington.

WOrds VaneSSa OrtYnSkY PhOtOGraPhy charlie JackSOn

mosaic by simo transports guests to

the streets of morocco for enticing

authentic cuisine. As Christchurch’s first

moroccan restaurant, mosaic provides

an unforgettable, aromatic experience.

located on busy lincoln road, the allday

eatery is friendly and inviting. When

we arrive for dinner we feel as though

we have set foot in a friend’s dining

room, surrounded by beautiful middleeastern

lamps and vases on display.

those looking to sample moroccan

cuisine will be satisfied by the variety of

dishes on offer at mosaic. during the

day, the restaurant serves wraps and

salads from its deli. the dinner menu is

traditional and infused with an array of

herbs and spices. From mezze to tagines

and briouat parcels, the options are a

colourful medley of fresh ingredients. i

resolve to return again soon to try more

of the menu.

at our server’s suggestion, we settle

on the andalusian platter, which features

vine-leaf wrapped dolmades, falafel,

north african rolls, vegetable crudités,

artichokes and olives. everything looks

and tastes amazing, and allows us to

sample a wide range of moroccan

cuisine. the dishes are beautifully

displayed with rich colours and scents.

it is customary in morocco to enjoy

your meal at a leisurely pace and never

rush, so we take our time with each

dish.

the traditional moroccan mint tea is

must-try. served with a turkish delight, it

comes in a gorgeous silver teapot.

With delectable food and genuine

hospitality, dining at mosaic by simo

is truly a pleasure. and, as much as

i’d love to keep mosaic by simo all to

myself, moroccan food is to be enjoyed

and shared with others. Christchurch

is fortunate to have such incredible

moroccan cuisine right on its doorstep

and those looking for a truly authentic

experience should certainly plan a visit.

Gastropub

a new addition to the up-and-coming st asaph

dishes with a modern twist.

Having recently arrived on the scene, Empire firmly

cements st Asaph street as a hospitality and nightlife

destination. nestled between café Valentino and

Baretta, the eclectic Japanese gastropub beckons diners

inside with its red neon glow.

this izakaya offers a modern twist on the social pubstyle

Japanese dining with not a tatami mat or low table

in sight. The interior fit-out is clean, with soft interior

lighting and red accents that complete a trendy, but

inviting atmosphere. patrons are seated in booths or at

high-top tables, which are removed later in the evening

to reveal a cavernous dance floor. This, along with the

expansive bar and loudspeakers, is evidence of a place

with no intentions of early weekend closing.

the menu offers a modern twist on traditional

Japanese dishes, which encourages guests to sample a

wide selection of the menu. the yakitori menu features

an array of chicken skewers that are designed for

sharing. the kushiyaki menu includes a variety of grilled

meats, like pork belly and scallops, as well as vegetables.

Both the yakitori and kushiyaki are served with either

tare sauce or shio (sea salt).

the larger izakaya dishes include both traditional and

‘new style’ selections that can also be enjoyed as mains.

With a focus on flavour, the dishes offer inventive

updates on authentic Japanese cuisine. As per Japanese

custom, every dish is beautifully presented, another

strength at Empire.

the bar list is a little more tongue-in-cheek with

cocktails such as ‘sum-ting yum’ as well as Asahi and

must-try sake.

those looking for fresh, inventive Japanese cuisine

should get themselves to Empire right away. not only

is the food mouthwateringly delicious, the atmosphere

represents the new christchurch food scene that is

steadily emerging. i’m sure you’ll agree that Empire

signals the next generation of christchurch cool.

BMW on a

charge

BMW’s electric-powered i3 gives

Ross Kiddie a shock.

I’ve been a member of the New Zealand Motoring Writers’

Guild for 28 years and value highly its annual Car of the Year

Award. Last year’s winner was probably the most significant

in the award’s history. The award was presented to BMW

New Zealand for the i3 – it is what BMW describe as a

mega-city vehicle.

Significantly, the i3 is electric powered. It’s the first time an

unconventional vehicle has won the award, and that suggests

to me that times are definitely changing. The motor industry

is viewing a whole new strategy in the way we drive and the

propulsion for doing so.

It’s a little bit of a lie to say BMW’s i3 is totally electric

powered. The test car was fitted with what BMW describe

as a range extender – a two-cylinder internal combustion

engine courtesy of BMW’s motorcycle range. It will double the

distance the i3 can travel – up to 400km-plus depending on

conditions and auxiliary draw such as air conditioning.

Like I said, the petrol-fuelled unit is an option on the i3, it

is there for those who fear range anxiety, or who need just

that little bit of extra distance from the batteries on their daily

commute, or the ability to travel longer distances on a regular

basis. The i3 utilises the latest generation lithium-ion battery

technology, up to 94Ah from 60Ah previously. Both AC and

DC charging systems are incorporated, the latter will charge

80 per cent of battery power in 40min.

Technology aside, the i3 is a surprise. Beneath the bold,

quirky look lies a spirited easy-to-drive model; it feels superquick

with immediate drive, the strong torque flow an electric

motor develops is dominant, it also has decisive braking under

deceleration.

BMW claims an acceleration time of 8.1sec (7.2sec, solely

electric) to make 100km/h from a standstill, and if laws allowed

it would reach a 150km/h top speed. I’m in no doubt they are

achievable performance figures. The i3 has energy at all speeds,

acceleration is constant, to my way of thinking it is a lot more than

just an urban commuter, it feels spirited at highway speed, and its

whisper-quiet motion is relaxing.

The latter needs to be kept in perspective, the i3 makes little

sound as it moves; that being the case, the driver needs to be

aware that pedestrians don’t always hear it coming, and in built-up

areas that could jeopardise their safety. That didn’t happen during

my time in the test car, but what was noticeable were the looks it

received from passers-by.

The i3’s styling is very avant-garde, it has styling cues and design

elements that are ground-breaking, yet fit with its role – it is a

vehicle that stands out with its concept, and beneath its chunky

design is an environmentally-friendly cockpit, which can be

optioned to suit each eco-conscious buyer.

The BMW i3’s ideology will lure the person who is concerned

about the welfare of the environment and just needs a commuter

where distance of travel isn’t a consideration, but at $74,300

it does carry a premium price ($85,300 with range extender).

However, any i3 buyer who is familiar with BMW vehicles

will automatically be at home in the i3, it is intuitive inside and

simplistic in its operating systems.

It is also a useful four-seater. There are two rear-hinged doors

that allow easy access to a cosy rear section, and it has the

functions that make BMW vehicles desirable in the first instance

PRice: BMW i3, $85,300.

Dimensions: Length, 3999mm;

width, 1775mm; height, 1578mm.

configuRation: Two-cylinder, rear-wheel-drive, 647cc,

28kW (125kW), 56Nm (250Nm), automatic.

PeRfoRmance: 0-100km/h, 8.1sec.

– satellite navigation, i-Drive and BMW Connected Drive. Vision is

high with large glass areas, and although the tyres are thin there’s

never a point where you think the i3 is vulnerable. And, being short,

it has fabulous manoeuvrability with a 10m turning circle.

I’ve seen several i3s on Christchurch roads, and that would

suggest people are looking to alternative transport yet understand

personal motor vehicles are still very much a necessity. The i3

arrives in New Zealand at a time when the awareness of electric

cars has increased hugely. Hopefully an increase in quick charge

stations will pop-up for those who do choose electric only.

My best friend is a Nissan Leaf owner, he is very much a

‘greenie’. He and the i3 have certainly heightened my awareness of

where we are heading in a world where sustainability is becoming

a global demand.

True Grit Breast Cancer

Cure Luncheon

Debbie Thompson, Lyn Davies

The late morning light of the unusually warm

autumn danced about the courtyard at Baretta,

welcoming guests to the True Grit Breast Cancer

Cure Luncheon. Flutes of luscious pink Champers

tickled the mouth and prepped the palate for the

treats to come. Dishes of delight, nobly conjured

from the kitchen were presented, destined to be

remembered as gems of the chef’s genius. Bids

made in the silent auction provided the means

to fund the war on this terrible disease which

scourges the world. Special guest Shane

Cortese stole much of the attention, his

presence lending support to the campaign.

The banquet ended all too soon, but in

triumph, to be heralded a success.

Ryman Healthcare Season of RNZB Wizard of Oz First Night

A curious glow suffused the Gloucester Room, catching the eye’s corner before vanishing, only to reappear as faces

moved through the mysterious pools of light. The tint was a lush green that lured the mind to believe that one really

was in the Emerald City. This location was of course the Isaac Theatre Royal, the backstage tense with final limbering

as dancers made ready. The Ryman Healthcare Season of The Wizard of Oz presented by The Royal New Zealand

Ballet was about to begin and guests attending the pre-show party, filed in to join Dorothy on her journey along the

The promise of a stylish night out drew

a multitude to The Columbo where deep

within, platters were being loaded with

goodies and glasses charged with liquid

treasure. When at last the doors were flung

open, the tide of guests entered, setting the

mall alive with the babble of voices. Following

the rounds of food and beverages, the show

began. Long-limbed models strode between

rows of seated viewers, presenting garments

for appreciation, the completion of each

circuit drawing applause. As the final click of

high heels on the catwalk faded away, boutiques

opened up for the opportunity to shop at leisure

and indulge in another morsel or three of

naughty but nice comestibles.

Do I Look Fat

In thIs?

I think when

women say,

‘Do I look fat in

this?’ they’re

asking for

some deeper

validation.

It’s not about

fashion advice.

– JESSICA WEINER

Hands up if you are guilty of

asking your significant other the

dreaded question: “Does this

make me look fat?”

In that moment, you forget the

pressure that has been placed on

the one you love to deliver not

their answer, but the right answer,

in the most unscripted, natural

and sincere way, ensuring it’s

exactly what you want to hear.

Let’s take a step back and see

what has driven you to the point

where you feel you require this

acceptance or acknowledgment

from another party.

Have we – as women and girls

– ever been completely happy

with our body image? Probably

not. Is there an exceptional

woman out there who loves

everything about herself and

doesn’t give a damn what others

think of her? Call me a cynic, but

somehow, I don’t think so. I dare

say even the likes of Heidi Klum

or Charlize Theron have their “fat

days”.

It’s ironic that the one person

we are all ultimately striving for

acceptance from is the same

person who looks back at us

each day in the mirror – ourself.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to think

that one day we could all look

in that same mirror and affirm

the beautiful lyrics from musical

maestro John Legend: “‘Cause all

of me, loves all of you. Love your

curves and all your edges. All

your perfect imperfections.”

Right! Now, back to where

we started. Can I just put it out

there for the defence of our poor

partners that the next time you

feel the question brewing at the

back of your throat – “Does this

make me look…” – stop, reflect

and answer your internal self

with the answer, “YES!” Because,

ultimately, if you’re asking the

question, you already know the

answer, don’t you. Just listen to

your inner stylist.
