‘A Place To Inhabit’ – A Solo Exhibition by Elliot Watson Official Opening

The Gallery is extremely proud to present a solo exhibition by Elliot Watson. Elliot is an emerging artist based in Newcastle.

He started painting a mere three years ago and completed his Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts at Newcastle Art School. He is currently studying at The National Art School in Sydney.

The thing I have always loved about painting is the immediacy and physicality of pushing paint onto a surface. I avoid realistic representations of the world, instead my practice involves a continuous sampling of lines, patterns, texture and color.

My work is a series of layers, I almost see it as a puzzle, I am constantly adding and subtracting until the pieces fit. I feel that the layers, although not always visible, transfer the three-dimensionality of the world onto a two-dimensional surface. I want to create work which is a conversation between composition and color, aesthetic work. I desire to be in pursuit of beauty, and the many forms it can take. This is what my series is about.”
