Boldly abstract in nature, Nick Grindrod’s paintings skilfully layer strict geometric forms with gestural painterly handling. Working in intense bursts of activity, initial sketches are adapted and reformed in an instinctive, immediate process.
Consequentially the removal of paint and erasure of marks play just as important a role as the application of paint, resulting in bold, flat, graphic colour fields sitting alongside abraded, distressed surfaces.
