Jonny Niesche’s hypnotic minimalism imbues abstract colour with the glitz of 70s glam rock.

Niesche reduces painting and sculpture to their most fundamental forms: colour, light, and perception. His abstract compositions ooze from the centre outwards in swathes of carefully rendered pastel hues that melt into one another. With symmetrical rectangular forms, the works are evocative of minimalist greats such as Anne Truitt and Donald Judd. Instead of seeing his works as painting or sculpture, Niesche sees them as ‘image-objects,’ shifting between the two disciplines.
