Neilson Hays Library is holding the curiously-titled "The Garden If Mine" exhibition which sees the return of Nat Posila's extraordinary and beautiful large-scale paintings.
This time, gigantic yet delicate petals vie for space with monumental columns of bamboo, organised into highly complex abstract rhythms.
This exhibition sees a metamorphosis in the maturity of Nat's work, reflected in his exquisitely detailed, hyperreal images of butterflies rendered on an immense scale.
Nat spent six years honing his painting skills, reproducing the works of old masters, photographers and famous artists.
This time-honoured yet unconventional apprenticeship has had a powerful influence on Nat's technique and has contributed to the remarkable mastery of his chosen medium, oil paint.
Nat's sensual flower studies continue to be reminiscent of Georgia O'Keeffe's, but there is a new confidence and distinctive style which has emerged in this exhibition. These paintings have a dual effect on the viewer, being both dynamic and calming.
Nat says people need art "to be inspired, to be reminded of the beauty that is often missed in daily life but apparent all around us".
The Garden If Mine will be on show at Neilson Hays Library and its Rotundaand Cafe galleries from Tuesday until May 3. The opening reception is on Wednesday at 6pm. The library is located on Surawong Road and opens Tuesday to Sunday from 9.30am to 5pm. Call 086-360-7792.
