About Vick Naresh

Vick is a contemporary abstract artist working and living in Hamilton, CA. His ongoing body of work is an exploration of the space between representation and abstraction, inspired by metaphoric narratives as well as current socio-community themes. His paintings communicate a gentle nod to post-modern and post-internet sensibilities where he renders his paintings with broad gestural strokes, rich colour, and multi-layered juxtapositions to communicate the nuanced and often-ethereal subject matter.

As a lifelong artist and graphic designer- Vick is interested in the classical resolution of binary ideation. In many instances, his work involves merging innovative processes with classical painting tropes to execute digital postulation onto traditional supports. This tug of war between the analog and digital brings about particularly exciting expression during the formative choreography of an artwork.
