Description

‘Summer/Cottan-Bimbang’, is a large-scale diptych created using acrylic paint, charcoal, pigments and gesso. It evokes the hot summer light passing through forest gums, the warm orange palette and shocks of black suggesting shadow, sunlight and reflection. The mediums are applied vertically in a solid linear format, becoming deconstructed as gritty textured layers overlap. ‘My work mostly deals with landscape, memory and the human condition. The paintings are really a personal dialogue. I offer the image and a title; it is then up to the viewer to complete the conversation,’ Angus Nivison explains.
