About The Event
Nicholas Greenhall presents a series of paintings, called 'The Myth of Sisyphus in Paint'
"It appears artistic statements are an attempt to reveal the nature of the artists work ,the motivation behind it, or ‘what the work is about’
I can only say they are difficult things to write about
In terms of the works conception, I can only say that it is most unfathomable
It seems the embryo is well camouflaged, which is the essence of magic & in itself sufficient for me
Its motivation can be partly explained through the title of the show
Painting is a way for me to transcend what Camus called the absurd, a way to find meaning in an indifferent universe
I invite you to attach any meaning to the paintings, you may even, as I do, prefer the mystery
I’m sure that memory, experience & thoughts act as a sub conscious catalyst
I’m equally sure they are escapist, existential & much more besides
I work in melancholic colors & muted tones in the hope they create an other worldly atmosphere & give space for the elements to float"
