Arid

12 October 2020 - 31 October 2020

"This group of bronzes focusses primarily on a few of the myriad forms of succulent plants that have adapted to the arid climate that holds sway over much of South Africa.  Succulents have evolved in response to the paucity of water by employing a fascinating and diverse array of adaptations that allow them to thrive and reproduce in extraordinarily harsh habitats.  
 
Nic Bladen has become the worlds most renowned contemporary sculptor celebrating the miracle of plant life.  His bronzes are not merely fabulously accurate casts that exhibit an astonishing commitment to delicacy and detail.  They are also mesmerizing due to the intensity of his art which uniquely I believe interrogates the very essence of each plant that captures his attention.  Anyone who has gazed in wonder at the enduring physical structure of a plant or its delightful ephemeral flower will find the art of Nic Bladen astonishing.  It is no surprise therefore that his sculpture is sought after internationally." - Mark Read (2020)
