Down the Coast

This view is looking towards the point in Torquay, however, I’ve seen a view like this many times on the hikes I’ve taken through the Bellarine and The Great Ocean Road. I often feel like we focus our attention on the ocean or on the stunning cliff faces, which are magic in themselves, but in this series I really started noticing the beauty in our native flora and wanted to capture the chaos yet calm feeling of nature’s garden in these works. Down the coast could represent where
you go to visit the ocean for that moment of serenity.

Artist – Nic Everist 

Nic Everist is a landscape artist based in Geelong. Her work documents her lived experience through the medium of landscape painting, connecting her inner world with her outside surroundings. Nic’s technique of pouring paint onto canvas creates organic marks that replicate the organic formations in nature itself. This element of abstract mark making combined with detailed brushstrokes lending to realism are defining features of her work.

Nic uses her creative practice to unravel personal ideas and stories that are resolved through her explorations in nature and throughout the painting process. She hopes by sharing these inner reflections through the medium of landscape painting, she can connect with others who seek the solace of nature for their own healing.


Home Grown is a show that is nurturing, personable, and proud to be Geelong.
