ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
We welcome Nicholas Hopwood to the hotel this month, as our Artist in Residence.
Nicholas Hopwood is a self taught realist oil painter, living and working in the Huon Valley / tahun’e-linah, Tasmania / lutruwita. Drawing inspiration from daily life in and around the Valley. Finding universal truths in the faces of loved ones, and in the objects surrounding him.
“I love paintings, for as long as I can remember I have loved paintings, for me there has always been a sense of wizardry and magic within them that directly touches my heart.
“I love to paint, I love the feel of brushing paint on canvas, of squeezing paint from the tube, love the smell of oil and solvent. I love the process and the outcome of making paintings.”
Nicholas Hopwood’s new exhibition Box Forts and Kokeshi will also be featured in the Packing Room gallery from 6th May to 15th June, 2022.
