Ron Nixon - A Large abstract painting on canvas, dated 1978.
Canvas stretched over a wooden framework, signed "RN 78" to the
front and “Ron Nixon 78” to the back This is from a series of work
made for a very large international corporate company in
The image very much of it’s age is however also very
contemporary with todays digital imagery but all done with the eye
and the brush rather than the computer, stripped of any figurative
representation Ron Nixon has used graphic shapes and vibrant
colour to produce this striking piece. Initially created in a
series for a large commercial space this would look stunning in a
contemporary domestic setting. Ron Nixon was the partner of the
internationally renowned textile artist / designer Barbara Brown
who produced many designs for Heals through the 1960’s and 70’s,
the couples Edwardian house / studio in Sth East London is
featured in the 1974-75 Decorative Arts Yearbook.
