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 Portsmouth.
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.
