Lucky Charm Abstract Art by Nicholas Girling

Exhibition and Shows

20 Dec 2018 to 20 Mar 2019

An art exhibition of abstract paintings by Melbourne artist Nicholas Girling. The art will be on display starting mid December for three months. The location for the exhibition is at the well known Bistro in McLaren Vale called The Barn.

My goal is to reveal the most natural tendencies I have with paint rather than consciously engineering them. As I paint, I go with my gut to see if there is an innate and natural painting style. A process of painting without a specific plan and attempting to remove self judgement from the art – at least at the beginning of creation. Many of my painting series look very different from each other. At this point in time, I’ve opened up the possibilities to style, rather than pre-empting them with just going with what was popular. Yes, I admit that this is a self indulgent exploration of creativity. As it evolves and changes, organic visual styles are being uncovered as my substance.
