NICK BOTTING: A Sense of Place
Oct 11 – Oct 31, 2018
Everard Read / CIRCA is proud to present A Sense of Place. An exhibition of new paintings by Nick Botting at Everard Read Cape Town. Opening on Thursday 11th October, it will run until 31st October 2018.
This is British artist Nick Botting’s fourth solo exhibition at our gallery, chronicling his recent visit to our shores.
Just as most of the Impressionists made their way to the south of France for the quality of light and immediacy of the colours and landscape, so has the Western Cape captured Botting’s imagination for many of the same reasons. He has made the Cape his own, bringing fresh eyes and a wonderful ability to transcribe what he sees, in paint – the sweeping vistas, the intimate moments, the languid beaches, the searing hot Swartland, the pulsing city. Painting en plein air has forced Botting to become a master of recording mood, weather, atmosphere and human gesture with extraordinary economy, all the while capturing the essence of a place as witness.
This collection of paintings demonstrates this perfectly, and is a refreshingly uncomplicated and unjaundiced view of us and the place we live in.
