Nemesh is well-established and recognised for his unique, authentic, and visionary artistic style of work. He focusses on the vibration and feeling of the art and how those feelings are transferred to the viewer. His work is vibrant, colourful and mesmerizing.“I believe that the artist, through their process of creation, is able to reach other dimensions or frequencies which can reflect in their work especially if the artist is open to this.
Through my paintings I want to lead the viewer’s imagination to another world, uncharted territory, joining spirituality and science fiction. The reason why I paint is to reveal that inner beauty and hopefully sing on your wall.
My belief is that this reality is just one of the frequencies and there are many different ones which we cannot reach because our brain frequencies are limited. We are only able to reach them when we are sleeping or in deep meditation. Through my artwork I am trying to reveal these dimensions or different worlds. Through my painting practice I do very often start with deep meditation before the painting process which helps me to be attuned with my work.”
ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION
Usually when I start a new collection of paintings an idea comes from the name of the very first painting I complete. I was doing live demo at the Kumeu Art Centre when I started this painting. Often the first thing which comes to my mind is the name of the painting. A while ago I was given Album Etterna by Emma Shaplin. Etterna means Eternal. I thought that would be a good name for the painting and later I decided to use it as the name for this new collection.”
