Nicholas Rena brings his latest collection, Deep in the Green Lilac Park, to life through the use of big shapes and bold colours.
Taking his inspiration from the likes of Leonard Cohen (some may recognise the title of the exhibition from one of his songs), T. S. Eliot and Anthony Caro, Rena’s pieces provide plenty of opportunity for debate: is it a bowl? Is it a sculpture? Is it abstract art? Whichever way you lean, there’s no denying the instant visual impact of his ‘vessels’, which are thoughtfully placed across three floors of the gallery, moving viewers from dark greens, to rich reds and bright yellows as they ascend the stairs.
Each of the 20 pieces on display are beautifully crafted with extreme precision, ensuring they’re perfectly smooth with sharp definition between the colours.
Rena, a Cambridge graduate, has work in the permanent collections at the V&A and Louvre, and has won various awards including Saatchi’s Art Fund.
