"Homage to Colour: John Nolan"
2007-09-11 until 2007-10-11
Gallery 53
Dublin, , IE Ireland

John Nolan is pleased to announce that his solo show Homage To Colour opened on Tuesday the 11th of September at Gallery 53, Caple Street, Dublin 1. The exhibition will continue untill the 11th of October. John Nolan was born in 1958, in Dublin, Ireland.His exuberant modern figurative style combines bold outlines with bright exotic colours. His interpretation of various motifs (Fish, Landscape, Flowers, Birds,Human Figure,Still Life,Trees) and interpretations of artists through history transmit a positive upbeat feeling to his viewers. John Nolan Has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2001.

Along side this exploration 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.
