John Nixon's EPW: SILVER opens today at Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne.
EPW: SILVER marks the continuation of John Nixon’s ‘Experimental Painting Workshop’, an ongoing project which
expands the realm of abstract painting. Demonstrating Nixon’s long-standing interest in the energy, associations and
material qualities of the colour silver, this exhibition is comprised of painted works which challenge the two-dimensional surface. Using architectural angles and the form and surface of the stretched canvas, the works in EPW: SILVER are
‘constructions’ which each configure new spaces.
Nixon’s sustained investigation into the possibilities of abstraction has positioned him internationally as a leading figure in contemporary painting.
He has been exhibiting internationally since the early 1970s. His recent solo exhibitions include EPW: 1995, at PS,
Amsterdam, 2011; EPW: Polychromes, TarraWarra Museum of Art, Victoria, 2007; and EPW: O, Stadtisches Kunstmuseum, Germany, 2005; and EPW at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne. His work is held in significant
public and private collections in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Germany, France, Switzerland, Poland,
Denmark and Korea.
The exhibition continues until 5 November.
