Artist's CV

Represented by nanda\hobbs

Through intense examination of the landscape, Blowers reconstructs microenvironments twig by twig, leaf by leaf. The result is a unique interpretation that allows the artist to showcase his highly refined skills as a painter.

Nicholas Blowers works predominantly within the medium of painting, with landscape figuring as a fundamental preoccupation.

Blowers is a subtle commentator. He is not waving a preservationist flag; he is, rather, reminding us of our inheritance. Whether conveying the mystery of undergrowth or the haunting silver-grey tones of a collapsed forest, Blowers's exquisite mirroring of the toughness intrinsic to challenged landscapes celebrates Beauty's defiance of destruction.

He has been a finalist in numerous prizes and was the winner of the Paddington Landscape prize twice (2007 and 2009) and the King's School Art Prize, 2007. Before coming to Australia Blowers completed a BA Hons in Fine Art at Southampton Institute, 1991–94. He is represented in the Parliament House collection, Newcastle Art Gallery, Artbank and Macquarie Bank.
