Tomislav Nikolic: Vestiges of Now - Art Collector

Tomislav Nikolic, ‘Vestige of Now: 2’, 2018. Acrylic polymer, 23.5ct Rosenoble with platinum gold leaf, glass, gesso compound on linen and wood, 87 x 104.5 x 11cm. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen Gallery, Sydney.
  The exhibition marks the fifth variation of Tomislav Nikolic's major group ‘Vestiges of Now’. He has established one of the most idiosyncratic and compelling painting practices in Australia. His approach to colour embraces the esoteric colour theory described in the Seven Rays. 

This ancient concept has held allure for diverse mystical and philosophical traditions from western culture, Hindu religious philosophy, the Byzantine and continues to be woven into the fabric of the 20th century occult. His investigations of colour don’t seek to sway the viewer’s acceptance of any belief system, but are driven by Nikolic’s own emotional acknowledgment of colours’ force and communicative capacities.
