Exhibition in London | Rocks Near Banff by Nick Sargent

07/12/2021 - 11/12/2021 10:30 AM - 5:30 PM

'Rocks near Banff', a series of thirty canvases all inspired by a small early 19th century print. Each work is an interpretation of this print, an abstraction or distillation of the original and stands on its own merits but they will be presented together as a complete body of work observing no strict chronological or stylistic order.



The print is one of many from the artists collection assembled over decades. This personal collection provides a rich tapestry of source material for the artist's work and a selection of these prints will be shown alongside the paintings in the exhibition.






THE ARTIST 

Nick Sargent trained in Scotland where he exhibited extensively; now based in London he has had successfull solo exhibitions both in the UK and internationally. In addition, he has shown at the European Commission and the Royal Academy, London.

His canvases are variously woven, embroidered or stitched and then sealed with gesso or paint or massaged with pigments - he rarely paints in the popular understanding of the term - resulting in the development of his unique style. The importance he places on craft in his work is paramount and is evidenced in the attention to detail of his finished pieces, attracting the attention of curators and serious collectors.

Sargent's work highlights the ongoing debate around craft, textile art and fine art. His work blurs the lines of distinction, shuffling the deck to arrive at a new and distinctive aesthetic.

The artist previously functioned in many design disciplines, all of which culminated in his current practice. Sargent has a Master of Fine Art from the University of Dundee, prior to this he worked as a highly regarded theatre designer and taught at university level.
