Nicholas Merton’s affectingly beautiful oil paintings are restorative and tranquillising. Determined to reconnect viewers with the spiritual beauty that is our essence, Merton’s oil paintings revitalise tradition and radiate universal serenity. Fighting to redress the disconnection of conceptual art by creating works that effect beyond the mind and into the soul. Merton is striving and succeeding at creating physical objects that ignite something in us that is often suppressed or superseded. Portrait, landscape or still life, his works capture and rejuvenate us with the overlooked or hurriedly unnoticed spiritual loveliness that permeates our everyday world.
