"Art of Colour: Works by John Nolan"
2005-06-04 until 2005-06-30
Irish artist John Nolan shows in his first " Art Of Colour " exhibition which took place on Saturday , 4th of June, 2005 at the Mercedes-Benz Dealership in Mainz-Lerchenberg, Germany.The exhibition is presented in conjunction with the launch of the new Mercedes-Benz B class model. This is John's first solo exhibition in Germany. John has been developing his abstract style, for many years. In the abstract work he experiments with colour through gestural brushstrokes. There is no discernable subject matter, he has abandoned the motifs of his modern figurative work and focuses on pure colour and composition.
Basically it is the artist, the canvas, the colour and the brush. His palette is still as vibrant as ever, using exuberant and exotic colours. He starts a painting with no definite preconceptions but simply an impulse, a subliminal thought about colour, space or form. He pushes beyond realism to build images that have power and urgency. It is a journey attempting to understand himself and existence, to give through his painting definition to the essence of being in the universe. His paintings are charged with masses of energy which cause the surface to move in vibrant harmony. Whatever inner pulse guides his work dictates his longing for colour and forms, and explores his imagination and inner experience.
Nolan was born in 1958, in Dublin, Ireland.
