John Nicholson is a Sydney based artist working with coloured acrylic in a unique and creative manner. He was exhibited widely since 1997. In 2007 he was aware a residency in New York.
"John Nicholson experiments with colour, and his colourful works have been described as a kind of 'architectural, optical art'. Working consistently with various plastics, binding polymers and pigmented Perspex, Nicholson creates sculptures and two-dimensional wall installations in his signature psychedelic palette. Nicholson is interested in the formal properties of light and how light interacts with its environment. His sculptures are often made up of strips of coloured plastic fused together to resemble geological core samples, or the light spectrum frozen in a solid form." courtesy of Sophie Gannon Gallery, Melbourne.
