“My work mostly deals with landscape, memory and the human condition. The paintings are really a personal dialogue. I offer the image and a title, it is then up to the viewer to complete the conversation.”
Angus Nivison lives and works on “Yalgoolygum”, a property near Walcha, in the northern tablelands of NSW. His relationship to the land informs his work and is a constant source of inspiration.
In Nivison’s most recent paintings we find glimpses of the figurative – here, perhaps, a view across mountains, there, a line of rain sweeping over paddocks. The works are deliberately ambiguous. Each carry an emotional intensity that is beyond words; a translation of experience into paint.
