Natchai Posila Exhibition at Neilson Hays Library
A solo exhibition of oil paintings by Natchai Posila will be on display at the Neilson Hays Library from Apr 1 to May 4.
The artist has spent six years honing his painting skills, reproducing the works of old masters, photographers and famous artists. This time honoured yet unconventional apprenticeship has had a powerful influence on Nat’s technique and has contributed to the remarkable mastery of his chosen media, oil paint.
Nat Nat’s sensual flower studies continue to be reminiscent of Georgia O’Keeffe’s, but there is a new confidence and distinctive style which has emerged in this exhibition. These paintings have a dual effect on the viewer, being both dynamic and calming.
Gigantic yet delicate petals vie for space with monumental columns of bamboo, organised into highly complex abstract rhythms. This exhibition sees a metamorphosis in the maturity of Nat’s work, reflected in his detailed, super real images of butterflies rendered on an immense scale.
The opening will be from 6pm to 9pm on Apr. 3, when the artist will be present.
