Nic Plowman lives and works in Brisbane. The young artist is a two time finalist of the coveted Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship and was acclaimed after his sell out solo show 'Magic, Sex. Death' at Jugglers Art Space in April 2008.
Nic's work often discuss a personal meditation on the diagnosis of life and the condition of being a subject of death. His results are powerful with images that seem to hover somewhere between what is imagined and dreamt versus what is real and exists by mixing exceptional drawing skills with a bold use of composition.
Nic has had two lots of Open Heart Surgery and has spent many hours contemplating his mortality and the fine line between beauty (life) and darkness (death). The hospital based works have been a consistent narrative within his work and serve as self therapy and an emotional launching point that keys his painting.
