Rob Nicholls is a visual artist working in painting. Nicholls genre-bending works are filled with flora and fauna reminiscent of the Romantic period while exploring psychedelia through repetitive strokes and illuminated colour. Through a memory-based painting process Nicholls creates abstracted ornate worlds made up of feathery forms in a technicolor palette. The sheen-like surface of his canvases allows paint to move fluidly to seamlessly overlay shapes and construct spatial depth. Each environment revisits a time of day and quality of light, from the muted visual experience of dusk to the vibrant colours of dawn.
