Friends whose art is in the right place

Pieces of art are being displayed against a blank white wall at St James Cavalier, Valletta, in an exhibition where synergy is the essence.

Aptly named Juxtapositions, the exhibition brings together works from four artist friends: Derek Nice, Paul Gibson, Jean Pierre Gatt and Wayne Hill. Juxtaposition is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect”.

Mr Nice’s paintings have witnessed a transformation as he broke free from the realism of his lifelong maritime sensibility into the “extreme intrigue of abstraction’s power of suggestion”. His new works incorporate found objects and fragments of written language as recognisable elements of humanity’s abstract means of communication.

Mr Gibson brings an architect’s sensibility to explorations of the huge working museum of monumental cranes around the drydocks and the compositions that go unnoticed in Maltese backyards.

Details are the main theme
