Juliarna and the heart statesmen of jazz
A GROUP of Artists’ Society of
Phillip Island members attended the
opening of Warren Nichols’ latest ex-
hibition Western Port at Quadrant
Gallery Hawthorn on April 7.
The exhibition was opened by Tri-
cia O’Brien of Philip Island Vineyard
Since Warren moved to Phillip Is-
land from Hobart a few years ago, he
and his partner Sandra Peeters have
been active members of the Artists’
Society, helping to organise exhibi-
tions and the running of various ac-
They have also brought with them
fresh insights and knowledge about
the art world which have proved very
valuable to members.
Warren regularly exhibits at Minga-
ra Gallery Cowes; Stephen McLaugh-
lan Gallery in Melbourne; and Inka
Gallery and Goulbourn Street Gallery
He was a finalist and winner in a
number of painting award and prize
exhibitions. His works have entered a
number of prominent Australian cor-
porate and private collections.
This latest exhibition of Warren’s
mixed media paintings are concerned
with the immediacy and the changing
mood and rhythm of the sea as ob-
served in Western Port, Victoria.
He is particularly interested in the
effect of changing light conditions
within a sea environment.
Warren explains: ‘The sea not
only reflects the changing sky, but
the sea’s form is also never static.
The sea constantly changes colour,
varying from turquoise to a myriad
of blue combinations and variations
of grey. Waves, small or turbulent,
provide a white relief, a flash of
movement. It is this translucency
and transition in colour, as dictated
by the changing sky and weather
patterns over the white surface of
snow, or transparency of water, that
holds my interest and which I con-
tinue to explore in my work.’
The exhibition is open until April
