Grant Nimmo creates intuitive and imaginative paintings. Enveloping himself in the process of painting Nimmo rarely leaves a work until the piece is complete, detaching himself from the chaotic world around him. Within his loose layers of paint Nimmo references a society that is becoming less and less about people seeking enjoyment and contentment, a community that is sinking into a state of perpetual anxiety and excess.
In World headquartes 2013, Nimmo will exhibit a new series of oil on linen paintings, where dreamlike and idealised imagery of nature, Smurfs and Taoist symbology are approached with conceptual sensibility and humor. The works presented in this solo exhibition hint at a desire for psychological balance through a perpetuation of hope and a re-connection with nature, ultimately portraying the artist’s simple desire for self clarity.
