John Nixon was a seminal figure in contemporary Australian abstraction. From 1968, his work was dedicated to the on-going experimentation, analysis and development of radical modernism, minimalism, the monochrome, constructivism, non-objective art and the readymade; which were key reference points in his work. Experimental Painting Workshop (EPW), which the artist named in 1990, but which covers works dating back to 1968, formed the basis of Nixon’s rigorous and long-standing intellectual investigation into the making of art, which over time expanded to encompass not only painting, but collage, photography, video, dance and experimental music performance.
