Nathan Moshinsky Exhibition 

Friday 1 September - Friday 29 September 2017

No opening:

Gallery: Members Room

Nathan Moshinsky has had several solo exhibitions at the Victorian Artists' Society, and has regularly exhibited in group shows held by that Society. He has also exhibited in group exhibitions organised by the Contemporary Art Society of Victoria.

In 2012 he completed a Diploma of Visual Art majoring in oil painting and print making. In 2015 he was awarded first prize and third prize for oil paintings exhibited at Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art Society of Victoria Inc.

This exhibition displays some of the styles, mediums and genres, which Nathan has been exploring. In the still life oil paintings of fruit and vegetables,  Nathan concentrates on the depiction of familiar objects placed on small surfaces. These works reveal the uniqueness of these objects in a composition which suggests harmony and balance.

Nathan has enjoyed his iPad, and in particular the "Art Rage" app, to produce colourful and spontaneous work, revelling in the unique mark making which this medium has enabled him to achieve.
