Landscape and seascape painting and drawing have been the primary subject matter for South African artist, Nic De Jesus, however, his latest works speak to ‘Cosmic Forms’ and ‘Figurative Painting’ which is something new for the artist, or is it?
In an exhibition format, ‘Enclave’ is a nod to the artists' love of film editing - a profession he once occupied. Nic uses ‘parallel editing’ - a technique of alternating two or more scenes that often happen simultaneously but in different locations. For example, the painting, Beyond the Pale a woman walking over a summit holding a vessel, will join the paintings Pneuma I & II and Prelude which at first sight resemble abstract forms. While the work may have apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic undertones they are grouped to remind us of how connected we are.
