Christian Nicolson

Exhibition April 14 - May 2
Opening and Artist's talk Saturday April 14 4pm

We were all on this ship in the sixties, our generation, a ship going to discover the New World. And the Beatles were in the crow's nest of that ship.
John Lennon (1940-1980) British musician.


Christian Nicolson has always been one to push the creative envelope. A free spirit from an early age, Christian has challenged conventional
arts practice and theory by refusing to conform to what is expected of an artist living and working in New Zealand.
Perhaps it is because of this rebelliousness that his works continue to appeal to young and old, corporate and household.

Though by no means a 'child of the sixty's', Christian has always been interested in that era.
His parents were teens during the 1960's and he was exposed to a lot of the movies, TV shows and music of that period.
It has been a fantasy of his to live in that time. A revolutionary time that started straight and ended up completely wild.
The protests, the movements, the outrageous fashion and music are all things that resonate with him.

It follows suit that Christian's latest exhibition entitled 'Flower Power' is an exploration of the icons and events that he feels captures
the spirit of the period. Christian has carefully researched and collated imagery and ideas into a series of unique montages that are
equal parts eye catching and informative. And scattered throughout the exhibition is evidence of Christian's sense of humour and poignancy.
'If only I had lived longer' (Jimi) befitting one of the icons of the music of the period.


The following is a small selection of the work coming for the exhibition. Please be sure to revisit this page closer to the exhibition.
