The eagerly awaited new exhibition has just opened in Eastbourne with a stunning new collection of beautiful works by Nigel J Greaves FRSA.There’s a great choice of refreshing paintings that will instantly add a brand new and exciting lease of life to any room in your home. Nigel’s works have captured some beautifully evocative moments in nature that have fully utilised his 50 years of experimentation with colour composition. The new exhibition is showing zestful, warm landscapes, seascapes and a new collection of absolutely stunning abstracts created using the finest pigments of brilliant and sometimes, subtle colour that ranges from pure vibrancy to a calm tranquillity.
The landscapes in particular are enchantments of colour with moods and places that are sometimes familiar while some are purely imaginary but all alive with a carefully chosen palette. Nigel’s works are very positive and he works as if he were trying to create a sublime world with the impression of an ideal description of nature, deliberately erasing all imperfections and signs of discord to give a feeling of a lost peace recovered, like a childhood memory.
A full time art student in the sixties, Nigel studied fine art, art history and graphic design at Eastbourne College of Art and Design. He was fortunate to study under Robert Tavener and Bob Miller. Since then he has gained confidence in his art, working with equal ease in acrylic, watercolour, oils and pastel. Time and much experimentation has led him to a world of new ideas with a fresh approach to the use of colour and to seek creativity that could be treasured. His works are collected all over the world and more recently has found popularity in high class London office receptions.
The gallery has attracted attention from the BBC, ITV, national and regional magazines and recently was used as a film set for the soon to be released film “Untouchable” by Lynchpin Films directed by Lana Maciver.
Nigel has been busy this year with field trips to southern Spain and France bringing back working drawings needed to produce the new works now on display. Visitors to the gallery will experience a highly colourful and beautiful collection of new works.
