Nicholas Harding

Nicholas Harding

London-born artist Nicholas Harding is known for his thickly layered oil paintings and watercolours and large-scale ink drawings. Featuring images of beautiful flowers, gritty metros and Australian beaches, Harding’s works demonstrate a fascination with life and nature, and his technical skill as a draughtsman and painter. Using instinct and emotion, Harding's works demonstrate his heartfelt encounter with paint.

A previous winner of the Archibald Prize and the Dobell Drawing Prize, Harding has held numerous sell-out solo exhibitions throughout Australia. He has been included in major exhibitions at the National Trust’s S.H. Ervin Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Art Gallery of New South Wales. His work is held in Australian collections including the Art Gallery of New South Wales, the National Gallery of Australia and the National Portrait Gallery, and in private and corporate collections in Australia, Singapore, the UK and the USA.

NICHOLAS HARDING AT S.H. ERVIN GALLERY

Nicholas Harding’s Wilpena Pound and Eucalyptus (Sliding Rock), 2019–20, is included in Tree of Life: A Testament to Endurance, at S.H. Ervin Gallery in Sydney until 31 May 2021.

In his exhibition review in The Sydney Morning Herald, art critic John McDonald describes Harding's painting as the best by the artist he has seen in years: 'The colour is crisp – the palette knife has been used with the precision of a surgeon wielding a scalpel. This vast canvas is filled with light, the composition held together by the most intricate rhythms.'

Harding's next solo exhibition at the gallery will open in November 2021. To join our waiting list, please contact the gallery.

NICHOLAS HARDING AT MANLY ART GALLERY AND MUSEUM

Granted access to the rehearsal room to sketch the actors and creatives behind Waiting for Godot, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Present and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, Harding also created lively portraits of actors out of character, including Hugo Weaving, Richard Roxburgh and Philip Quast.
