Feature Artist – Spotlight On Jonny Niesche

Jonny Niesche was born in 1972 in Sydney, Australia and lives and works in Sydney. His voile paintings and animation installations reference and intersect with art historical forms of abstraction, minimalism and the sublime. By forcing the viewer into the space of his artwork, Niesche helps us explore how see and experience space and colour.

Niesche has been included in major group shows at Artspace, Sydney; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Sydney; Gesso Artspace, Vienna; and Perth Institute of Fine Arts, to name a few. Niesche created a massive work for the facade of Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) as a feature of VIVID Sydney 2018, and his works are included in the collections of Artbank, Museum of New and Old Art (MONA), Hobart, National Gallery of Victoria as well as in leading private collections in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia.
