We are delighted to welcome John Nicholson to the gallery and look forward to working with him in the future.
John Nicholson is currently based at the Birmingham Street Studios – a lively hub for contemporary art in Sydney. Since graduating from the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, Nicholson has exhibited widely in Melbourne and Sydney.
The slippery surface of plastic is the chosen platform for John Nicholson’s visual offering. Plastic, a signature material of the ultra-modern, is produced from oil and Nicholson’s works fundamentally express that origin. Injected with colour and spliced into compositional arrays, the works resemble vortices of space-time in a bold graphical language of psychedelic seduction.
He has held studio residencies at the Bundanon Trust Artist Centre and at OMI International Art Centre in New York. His works are held in public and private collections in Australia and overseas, including in the collections of Artbank, Deutsche Bank, the University of Queensland Art Museum, Mirvac Corporation, Bond University and Penrith Regional Gallery, as well as in the collections of Goyang City in Seoul and OMI Arts Centre in New York.
