Nathan Paddison’s paintings are experiential, raw and drawn from a troubled past. Gestural marks and indistinct language known to the artist form an expressionistic dialogue. Nathan’s strong line and approach to palette meld closely with the physicality and urgency in which he works.
The impatience and powerful language forming in Nathan’s work is akin to compulsion rather than task. He uses many different mediums such as acrylics, enamel, fabric, newspaper, marker and pastels. He believes that working in a single medium is restrictive to his artistic process.
Each idea manifests in its own individual style. He says “I don’t know the result until It shows me and comes to life”.
