Nick Grindrod is a British artist based in Sheffield. He studied Fine Art at the University of Derby and Sheffield College. He has shown widely in the UK, USA and Poland, and has work in numerous private collections. Nick sells through Smithson Gallery and Afternyne Contemporary in the UK, and 19 Karen in Australia.
Boldly abstract in nature, Grindrod’s paintings skillfully layer strict geometric forms with gestural painterly handling. Working in intense bursts of activity, initial sketches are adapted and reformed in an instinctive, immediate process. Much of the aesthetic decision making is done in the moment – intuitively working with the paintings in ‘real time’. Consequentially, removal of paint and erasure of marks play just as important a role as the application of paint and this is abundantly clear when we look at the finished works.
