Biography

In Jonny Niesche’s (AU, 1972) practice colors are presences, or performers. Each tone deliberately selected for its resonance and how it exists in conversation with the next, Niesche understands and exploits the power of color to trigger our senses. Trawling fashion, music, makeup, and his own practice he digitally selects and distills hues to define the right experiential outcome, often one that offers a certain frequency to the gallery space. His practice is characterized by a plurality of color field combinations, seriality, and a play of light and motion. Niesche studied fine arts with Mikala Dwyer at Sydney University. His work is held in a number of collections, including Artbank, Sydney; Museum of New and Old Art, Hobart; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; as well as private collections in Europe, the United States, Canada, Asia and Australia.
