  • Artist Statement

    "Nathan’s oeuvre explores the complex relationship between past experience of landscape, designed space and memory.

     

    Through the application of varied media and materials, Nathan presents a multi-layered but synergistic system of colour, texture and pattern, drawn from his physical environment, which conceals and reveals his personal history.

     

    Often manifesting a topographical quality, these clever picture-scapes draw the viewer’s eye across the canvas, resulting in a sensation of being both moved and soothed."

    Nathan’s talent in art shone at a very early age, and during his formative years at Lithgow High School, was selected two years running to take part in week long art camps for regional students in Broken Hill. After winning the year 12 Art Prize in 1993, during his final year of school at Blue Mountains Grammar, he put his art practice on hold to study and work as a designer.

     

    It was not until 2003 that he began painting again, as a result he was fortunate enough to be a finalist hung in the Willoughby Art Prize in 2005.

     

    As an emerging artist he reignited his art practice over the last 13 years whilst balancing his work as a multi-disciplinary designer; originally a producer in online advertising, he transitioned into exhibition + event design, and visual merchandising. For the last four years he has primarily worked in interior + building design, whilst studying architecture part time at the University of Sydney.

     

    He holds a Bachelor of Design and Technology (UWS Nepean), and from the University of Sydney; a Graduate Certificate in Design Science (Building) and a Master of Film and Digital Image (Sydney College of the Arts).

     

    Nathan is excited about his recent move into one plus two artist studios and gallery Rozelle, where he can leverage off his previous professional and academic experience as a creative, to dedicate more time to his art practice; selling limited edition fine art prints of works from past private commissions, whilst working on new series of works for upcoming exhibitions planned.
