In the Chaos

It struck me one day how chaotic the flora is along our coast, often twisted and messed all together, however, when I look at the flora I don’t feel chaotic, I hear the breeze and see the details and feel calm and grounded. I hope I’ve captured that feeling in this piece.

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.
