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.

Since graduating from the College of Fine Arts in Sydney, Nicholson has exhibited widely in Melbourne and Sydney. He has held studio residencies at the Bundanon Trust Artist Centre and at OMI International Art Centre in New York. His works are held in public and private collections in Australia and overseas, including in the collections of Artbank, Deutsche Bank, the Univeristy of Queensland Art Museum, Mirvac Corporation as well as in the collections of Goyan City in Seoul and OMI Arts Centre in New York.

John Nicholson and Martin Smith in 'Ten Years of Things' at UQ Art Museum

Sculptures by gallery artists John Nicholson and Martin Smith have been included in the forthcoming exhibition Ten Years of Things at the University of Queensland Art Museum. Curated by Samantha Littley and Gordon Craig, this exhibition focuses on art as object; things that surround us, entering into our lives as desire and necessity dictates. Within the art museum, objects take on particular meaning, perceived as separate or ‘other’ than other things. The art object and ideas around objecthood are explored in Ten Years of Things, which includes works of art made over the last decade.

The exhibition runs from 7 December 2012 until 24 March 2013.


John Nicholson at Maitland Regional Gallery

Work by John Nicholson has been included in the forthcoming exhibition Inspiring Artists: recipients of the Pat Corrigan Artists’ Grant at Maitland Regional Gallery.

The grant scheme, managed and promoted by NAVA (the National Association for the Visual Arts), assisted artists in the early stages of their artistic careers, subsidising the costs of public presentation of their visual arts, crafts and design work. Many of the grant recipients have gone on to achieve national and international success as artists.

This exhibition features a small selection of Pat Corrigan Artists’ Grant recipients and highlights the diversity in arts practice that has evolved from the encouragement and support of these grants.

The exhibition runs from 9 November 2012 until 17 February 2013.
