“Ephemeral” will display never before seen works, and is Nik Shanlin’s first foray into this style of modernistic painting, an exclusive collection of graphic mixed-media works exhibiting an unique blend of traditional painting and contemporary technology.
“This new series “Ephermeral” is my first introduction to working with color. I don’t plan on exploring this much further, hence the title ephemeral. I’m also working with bold shapes that to me strongly define the composition in an almost somewhat overbearing way. These shapes are enlarged versions of some of the finite shapes seen in my previous work, so there’s a tie in there as well. To me it’s Motherwell meets Riley, if I were to put it into art speak terms”, states Nik Shanlin.
