Nicolas Kinver

Having studied at Loughborough College of Art & Design I subsequently I went on to lecture in 3D Design at Dyfed College of Art, Newport Gwent College of Art and Pembrokeshire College of Art. I first designed a Bardic Chair for the National Eisteddfod in Newport and have exhibited in Rhuthin, Cardiff, St Fagans, St Davids Cathedral, Newport, Carmarthen and in Workshop Wales.

I work on individual pieces using local hardwoods when possible, making sculptural furniture using hand tools. I like to make furniture that is more sculptural, the shape and texture of the wood is important, the aesthetics. When you purchase furniture you tend to live with it for a long time, seeing it and using it each day. So like a painting I like to enjoy looking at the pieces. Often clients say they “Like the feel” of my pieces, they are tactile.

Painting mostly in oils or watercolour, most of my work is about water and about transitory moments in time. Important to me are rich variations of colour, using light and dark tones, rough and smooth textures along with good underlying drawing, a strong composition and the absolute delight of using paint. I like my work to be contemplative, with a bit of poetry about it. I trained in Fine Art at Kingston-on-Thames in the early 1960's. Later, because of family commitments, I couldn't paint until my children had left home. During those years I ran a small clothing business called Schmocks in Devon. For a while I screen-printed flowers, butterflies, fish, dragons or abstract designs on the smocks and even featured as a Guardian Woman. I began painting again when I moved to West Wales in 1988, initially screen-printing cards and wrapping papers .

My first exhibition was in Swansea at the Ceri Richards gallery at the University in 1992. Since then I have held several solo exhibitions there and at many other venues in Wales. I was awarded an Arts Council grant for my touring exhibition 'Above & Below' in 1997-98 and another grant in 2007-08 for a touring exhibition 'The power of water and swell of the Wave'. I am a member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales (RWSW), showing with them throughout Wales and in Iceland, Paris and soon in Milan.
