Contemporary Paintings Soho Galleries and Chifley Foyers

I always say that my work is not autobiographical in so much as Im not exploring my existential angst. What I am trying to represent, in the only way I know how, is the complete impotence I feel when governments make decisions on my behalf with big businesses. The frustration I feel in the knowledge that governments are just the puppets of their wealthy financial backers. Much of my work depicts the lushness of the human form alongside the exciting colours of Australian beaches. The sea has such a strong calling for me in that it can be a frightening thing, vast, unknown and destructive. Yet, conversely, it can be a meditative thing with its constant motion, its horizon, while its expansiveness stimulates the senses.

I feel that it has a big role in the Australian psyche. Australian beaches reflect joy, hedonism, fun and of course the sun. Beneath this

shimmering surface lies much more: confessor, critic, soul mate, and stranger. The beach, the expansive ocean and the motion of the waves begs the question  is it friend or foe? It can just as easily take and, then bestow its bounty on us. The seascape with its strength and rhythm may not have all the answers, but it will always be there for us, listening and healing delivering answers drawn from an ancient, collective memory of

deep power and knowledge. There is an affinity we feel for the sea, why we are drawn to the beach, both for frivolity and fun and in times of introspection. And then there is the indifference with which we treat the oceans and each other. My paintings take the viewer on a journey to the inner life of my subjects. The men in suits symbolise the power of governments, big business and the media. The neutrality of the sea allows us to envisage what truly is. My work has always been about social observation, seeing the humour and the hidden desperation of those business men who scurry to and from their offices. I spend a lot of time in Martin Place, watching people, the flow of humanity, noticing their body

language. I photograph and sketch them. I was inspired by the beautiful and dynamic movement of a flock of bewigged and gowned barristers; the gait of a man in a suit, nearing his retirement. They represent to me the desperation and unhappiness I see in men of a certain age, and that moment when they realise that their working lives, their striving to succeed has amounted to nothing. The sea washes away all the fussiness of

the city so that you can see what is really going on  the machinations of big business, the political manoeuvring and the lack of responsibility.

The juxtaposition of the man in the suit with the ocean is not about death but about introspection, about the goals we set ourselves, the quest for individualism and thence the loss of social interaction. The men in my paintings have spent a lifetime earning money, keeping up with technology, which in return isolates them  from their families, society, and their feelings.

ABSTRACT ART EXHIBITIONS at Soho Galleries Sydney  Art Soho Waterloo

Art often is seen and felt as an enlightening and emotive personal experience.

The visual language of spontaneous shards of dynamic colours against the softest cloud like subtle hues is how I express my artistic voice.In an abstract form, I like to engage others into their own perceptions of what they see.We all assimilate our environment and life’s experiences very individually which I personally express on canvas with varying overlays of transparent and opaque paints.

The interaction of living creatures whether underwater, such as the endless amazing variations in our Great Barrier Reef ,or above groundanimals, insects and plants, have a real fascination for me, and they are often depicted in my work as abstract creatures reaching out and communicating, as well as protecting each other, just like the positive characteristics in humans.Even though the subject and meaning of each work is apparent to me it is still through the eyes of the observer that the final conclusions are made.

Art offers  me  unlimited  chances to delve into how I see the world and stand in it. At times I paint to simply create a beautiful landscape. Composition and colour balance are my main objective with these, my   landscapes are always stylised with careful consideration to how they will sit in a personal environment. They are always a pleasure to paint, I genuinely love watching a blank canvas transform into a landscape in which I can put my personal stamp on.

Other paintings I tend to paint with almost no real objective other than how I feel at that moment, these paintings always take on another form day to day as I work out each section, ultimately my desire is to bring a canvas together with clarity and purpose.  A visual balance is crucial, the thought of sending a painting off into the world in which I dont feel has had a breath of life bothers me.

I paint as thats how I see the world, it will be a lifelong pursuit in which I will hopefully always challenge and force  myself to keep looking forward with a real sense of wonder that being an artist can offer.

 ARTIST  NEVILLE PILVEN 

 AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS

During the warmer months Melbourne artist, Neville Pilven, spends a lot of time painting at his cottage on the fringe of the Wimmera in Western Central Victoria. His cottage-studio is located in a quiet rural area once mined for gold. Pilvens semi-realist landscape paintings border on the poetic, with historic folk references employed as pictorial iconography; an old tank, a remnant of a fence, or a dam. His sombre palette and a sense of emotional connection to the landscape, veil a deeper questioning upon the forces that shape nature and our place as people in the landscapea theme that resonates with the landscape paintings of Russell Drysdale.

Born in 1939, Pilven studied at the National Gallery Art School and the George Bell School (drawing).  In the mid-1960s, Pilven left Australia for several years of European travel, study and painting, to England, Spain and Hydra Island, Greece. In 1972, he studied printmaking at Morley College, London, before returning to Australia in 1973, to settle in Melbourne. He was a finalist in the John McCaughey Invitation Art Prize, 1979, National Gallery of Victoria. Neville has held twenty solo exhibitions, many with leading Melbourne galleries. He has undertaken commissions for Myer, Telstra Australia and National Panasonic. His work is in collections including Artbank, Latrobe University, Ansett, Westpac, National Bank, Telstra Australia, Ridley, Potter Warburg and private collections in UK, USA, Australia and Japan.
