PLAYGROUND | New Works by Nick Grindrod

Nick Grindrod is a British artist based in Sheffield. He studied Fine Art at the University of Derby and Sheffield College. Boldly abstract in nature, Grindrod’s paintings skilfully layer strict geometric forms with gestural painterly handling. Graphic color fields exist alongside abraded, distressed surfaces. Much of the aesthetic decision-making is done at the moment – intuitively working with the paintings in real-time. The removal of paint and erasure of marks play just as important a role as the application of paint, and this is abundantly clear when we look at the finished works. Working in intense bursts of activity, initial sketches are adapted and reformed in an instinctive, immediate process.

Grindrod has shown widely in Britain and the United States and has work displayed in a number of private collections.
