Nanda\Hobbs is proud to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Nicholas Blowers in the Project Space. Tasmanian-based Blowers is an artist at the height of his visual powers. His sellout exhibition at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair in September 2022 has marked him as one of Australia's leading landscape painters.
Every articulated mark within Blower's practice is visually considered and tonally compelling. Central to his atmospheric landscapes is a sense of melancholy and the influence of a darker, grittier, Northern tradition. There is an intimacy conveyed in these compositions of tangled undergrowth, tree portraits and acid colour skies. Quiet moments in the landscape gracefully unravel themselves to the audience: it is an experience testament to the artist's long-considered observation of his subjects. Within this process of revelation, Blowers reminds us to consider the places that the world has forgotten or never found.
