Young artist Nick Wall has a major series of new abstract works now on show at the Warwick Henderson Gallery to coincide with Art Week, which runs from October 26th – 4th Novmeber.
Nick Wall has established himself as an artist with integrity who presents his work with flawless detail and finish. Although Wall’s paintings are abstract in the reduced and simplified manner of great colour field and minimalist artists such as Malevich, Reinhardt, Nicholson, Newman, Rauschenberg and Rothko, Wall’s strong elements of design and meticulous finish culminate in a singularly unique and stand-alone artwork.
This is a potent feature of Nick’s work, which is something very difficult to achieve, yet something the artist has successfully managed. This success only comes with hard work and a ton of dedication says art dealer Warwick Henderson. “Each work is of the highest standard and quality and yet each painting is very much interdependent in the context of the exhibition as a whole. It is a stunning display of artwork in this genre.”
Wall says “I harbour some concern and nervous excitement, because in these works there is no deep significant meaning of the human condition, there are no crooked fingers signifying troubled relationships or dogs at feet celebrating loyalty. There is composition, there is space and there is an attempt at something new where everything has been done before.”
Most of the paintings are shaped with large areas of space interceded with black geometric lines which inject an edge to the challenging shapes. These black angles and circles seem to sit happily – an unusual and surprising symmetry and synergy is very apparent. These works exude order, calmness, contentment and a great aesthetic. As Wall states “I think of these works sitting still, like a lightly plucked guitar.

Wall was a recent finalist in the prestigious Wallace Art Awards and this is his 6th Solo Exhibition.
