Sydney-based artist John Nicholson’s new body of work ‘Breaking House’ is a psychedelic study of fractured form and carefully measured colour-stacks extruded to redefine and animate their framed parameters.
Nicholson’s use of highly saturated coloured polymers and pigmented Perspex are a scientific study of light and colour, a visual movement of sound and vibration. Stand-alone or wall hung sculptural interplays connect and harmonise, pulling the guest through the exhibition.
They are architectural optical art, at once minimalist and pop futuristic. We love the timber frames in ‘Two Way’ and ‘Double Jam’, calming notions of building blocks their balance only made possible by the asymmetric angled blades of colour. Nicholson’s ‘Atrium’ is a dreamy conceptual vision.
