A Gratifying Glance – 2018

A striking portrait by artist Stevie Nicholson, as part of our IN:SIGHT 2018.
Experimentation is the key to Stevie’s contemporary portraits: the humble paintbrush has been abandoned in favour of bank cards and his mother’s supermarket discount card!
Admired from afar, his oil on canvas pieces may resemble a traditional painting, but up close the viewer is overwhelmed by abstract block markings, drips and colour – which give his work a pixelated effect.
Stevie says: “I want the viewer to ask questions. My focus is to find something captivating and unique by pushing the boundaries of portraiture.”
