CHG Directors Statement: Nick Ferguson is an emerging artist based near Sydney, Australia. Since 2013 he has been a finalist in multiple Australian painting prizes, including the Paddington Art Prize and Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award.
In 2015 Ferguson was the winner of the Muswellbrook Art Prize Painting Section and received a Highly Commended award in the Hurford Hardwood Portrait Prize, judged by Fiona Lowry.
Commenting on his entry in the 2015 Muswellbrook Art Prize, Judge Anne Ryan (Curator of Drawing and Prints at the Art Gallery of NSW) commented – “This is a painterly, highly charged portrait that offers psychological insight into its subject. The handling of paint and form is intuitive and explorative; the viewer gets a sense of the artist’s search for form and resolution as the painting is built up in layers of paint and colour. The subject’s downcast eyes and hands, poised in mid-air as if in the middle of some action, add a visual and psychological tension to the composition."
