About This Work
“The central figure depicted in the artwork symbolizes time itself, illuminated by a bright light but one that feels no warmth, highlighting the intangible nature of time. This enigmatic figure, surrounded by mystery and intrigue, seems elusive yet present at the same time, offering a visual representation of how time is sometimes experienced. This painting also features the recurring motif of pendulums as a representation of the passage of time. Time is constantly Singing a Song. (the bottle/message)”
Vick is a contemporary artist currently living and working in Hamilton. His ongoing body of work is an exploration in figurative abstraction that delves into metaphorical narratives tackling social contemporary and personal themes around displacement, belonging and identity.
Drawing from a background in graphic design, his works are digitally informed while engaging more classical painting tropes and techniques through their ultimate execution onto canvas. Multi-layered compositions reflect the cumulation of Naresh’s memories as they are translated into painted form.
Vick’s practice is guided by a recognizable, yet undefined language of qualifying imagery mixed in with geometric configurations and representations of imaginary environments further expanded with the use of visceral colour harmonies. These works index moments of reflection in an immaterial universe, attempting to comprehend the ethereal while superimposing layered memories.
